Help with fortran programming

Help with fortran programming

Help with fortran programming

Hi guys.
I'm new to fortran and I'm supposed to do do a combustion simulation using it ( yeah pretty challenging)...but I don't know how to get there ...from the definition of the domain, discretization, meshing and solving equations....if someone has an experience on this ....Please show up!!!

RE: Help with fortran programming


Welcome to Tek-Tips.

Your question is very nebulous. Is it about the logic of the simulation or how that might be coded in FORTRAN? Why does it need to be FORTRAN? Why not some other language you program in, for instance?

RE: Help with fortran programming

Actually, i'm supposed to use fortran (and also, i'm not a genius at other programs), so I would like to know that kind of simulation can be coded in fortran ??

RE: Help with fortran programming

What about he other question?

RE: Help with fortran programming

Just a general answer : Fortran is "Turing complete", like many other programming languages. It means it can be used to program any programmable subject, including combustion.

Now, programming a combustion code is too vague. For instance, I programmed myself, in two different ways, H2 combustion/deflagration and sodium fire in containment. Each code needed years of development/assessment (the assessment being always the longest task).
