Simulation tools offered to NASA funded project researching ammonia in aviation

A $10m NASA funded project which seeks to use liquid ammonia as a main hydrogen carrier to decarbonise the aviation industry is set to on leverage chemical kinetics and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tools.

Ansys today (August 1) revealed its simulation tools will be used in the five-year University of Central Florida (UCF) study to analyse, test and qualify the use of ammonia as an alternative fuel to power zero-carbon jet engines.

The firm says the goal of the project is to use ammonia as a main hydrogen carrier by including chemical catalysis to leverage ammonia’s hydrogen component while only releasing ‘safe’ emissions.
