Combustion is one of the important processes in our daily activities. Even most of the transportation uses the combustion system. Nowadays, many ways or methods were designed to simplify the complicated research in combustion phenomenon, especially in vehicle dynamic subject. There are new methods that use simulation study to analyze the combustion behavior and obtain data for any system design. In this dissertation, the preferred simple design is the oldest and simplest type of gasifier which is the counter current or updraft gasifier. As for the reference model for the simulation is the UTeM’s updraft gasifier. This kind of research can give several simulation results data such as temperature distribution and gasifier performance for future research. The first procedure is by getting the dimension of the gasifier. Next, draw the model of the gasifier in the modeler software, Gambit. In Gambit, a mesh web for the gasifier geometrical volume is generated. Then the solver software, Fluent will solve the problems to get a result analysis of the gasifier such as temperature distribution, velocity profile and fuel mass fraction. Lastly, compared the simulation result with the experimental result..
