Reaction Design Details Strategic Relationship With ANSYS, Inc.

Posted on July 27, 2009

As part of a recently announced strategic relationship between Reaction Design and ANSYS, Inc., Reaction Design will deliver a new ANSYS FLUENT optimized version of CHEMKIN-CFD, an advanced chemistry simulation technology that efficiently and robustly couples accurate chemical kinetics to flow simulations to ANSYS customers. Available to ANSYS FLUENT licensees for free, CHEMKIN-CFD, coupled with ANSYS FLUENT technology, facilitates highly accurate combustion and emissions analysis for industrial power generation designs.

In the energy, transportation, and chemical process sectors, today’s challenges of increased fuel flexibility, high-efficiency demands, and emissions reductions, coupled with a difficult economy, set the stage for an increased role for accurate simulation. In the current economic climate, efficiency of design and operation are paramount for the successful system designer. Commercial combustion firms and materials manufacturers recognize that achieving low-emissions design, improving productivity and increasing performance require incorporating more detailed chemistry in their simulations. Using engineering simulation effectively in design workflows can enhance designer ingenuity, reduce development costs, and improve speed to market.

“In today’s world, the ability to accurately predict the effects of detailed chemistry in combustion or catalytic systems is critical. However, past technology solutions have forced engineers to make tradeoffs between accuracy and time to results,” said Bernie Rosenthal, CEO of Reaction Design.

"Reaction Design’s contributions to the development of clean technology combustion systems and fuels through the application of detailed chemistry are well recognized, and it is with great pleasure that we elevate our partnership with such a technology leader,” said Dipankar Choudhury, vice president of corporate product strategy and planning at ANSYS, Inc. "CHEMKIN-CFD helps ANSYS FLUENT users improve their understanding of complex reacting flows and chemistry.
