CFD simulations of coal gasification using a novel grid reconstruction algorithm to investigate deposit growth and slag dynamics 
High-pressure entrained flow coal gasification is becoming increasingly important particularly in the development of Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) technology for the production of fuels, chemicals and electricity. Coal gasification is a complex thermochemical process that can be divided in three different phases: pyrolysis, char gasification and gas phase reactions. Pyrolysis is the initial stage in any gasification process and it is modeled by applying a single rate approac...    »
