Extensive Collection of Digitized Data

Cloudflame provide a near-complete collection of all research digitized data for Shock tube/RCM ignition delay time and Jet Stirred Reactor speciation experimental results. The combustion field generates a vast amount of data via publications each year. This data is useful for analyzing simulation data against experimental results. Our aim is to keep this data as up to date and as relevant as possible.


Fuel Design Tool

The Fuel Design Tool consists of a regression algorithm that determines the optimal surrogate composition to match the specified fuel properties, specifically hydrogen/carbon (H/C) ratio, density, thermodynamic characteristics, carbon types, and octane numbers. A chemical kinetic mechanism can also be generated with this tool for the surrogate consisting of cyclopentane, toluene, 2-Methylhexanen-Pentane, iso-Pentane, n-Heptane, iso-Octane or 1,2,4-Trimethylbenzene.


Cloudflame hosts a collection of 0-D and 1-D kinetics solvers

Simulation declaration

Researchers across the combustion community use 0-D and 1-D simulations for inferring characteristics of fuels and to compare different kinetic mechanism with ideal reactor experiments. The available simulations consist of major 0-D and 1-D simulation solvers including Homogeneous Ignition Delay, Plug Flow Reactor and Premixed Laminar Flame Speed.

Our goal is to provide fast simulation solvers via a user-friendly interface to be able to conduct on-demand research and comparative studies with experimental data.
