Development of an optimal medium power gas burner was carried out under the EU FP6 project. Modeling and simulation was performed using the FLUENT and partly StarCD Adapco software packages. Restrictions that were imposed by available resources and 32-bit architecture allowed us to simulate only a small segment on the assumption of complete radial symmetry. In HP-SEE project we used available supercomputers and simulated the full cross section of the burner in OpenFOAM. An analysis of the differences in the results was performed. The advantages of this approach to CFD modeling of combustion were demonstrated.
