Abstract

A computational fluid dynamic (CFD) software is used to model an oxyacetylene torch used as a screening facility for high temperature material testing. First, a published test-case is used to verify the CFD approach. The model that was produced falls within 5% of the Marra et al. [15] work in regards to heat flux and front face temperature, with a one step reaction mechanism that is computationally cheap. Then, the approach is used to model an existing experimental facility.
