BLAZE High-Fidelity Simulations

BLAZE has been used to simulate a reactive heat exchanger including transient dynamics, volume and surface reactions, and secondary species.

BLAZE has been used to simulate a reactive plasma medicine sterilization chamber including volume and surface reactions and secondary species.

BLAZE User Extendibility

  • All major model components function with an associated, fixed API (application programming interface) which is accessible to users
  • Users can add or replace major components and utilize user-created components in tandem with provided components.  User creatable components are:
    • Finite-volume models
    • Linear solvers
    • Fit forms
    • Grid format parsers
    • Output formats
    • Chemistry modules
    • Boltzmann solvers
  • In order to simplify user model creation, substantial functionality is provided to users via the Finite-Volume Model API:
    • All parallel functionality, e.g. variable synchronization at partition boundaries
    • Parallel linear solvers
    • Generalized flux schemes
    • All grid related functionality
    • All input and output functionality

BLAZE Compatibility and Value

  • Compatible with Windows, Macintosh, Unix/Linux, distributed memory clusters
  • Compatible with both commercial and free, powerful, open-source grid generation and post-processing software
    • Leverage compatibility with free pre- and post-processing software solutions in order to minimize training and operating costs
