DNS of a premixed turbulent V flame and LES of a ducted flame using a FSDPDF subgrid scale closure with FPItabulated chemistry
Abstract
Two complementary simulations of premixed turbulent flames are discussed. Low Reynolds number twodimensional direct numerical simulation of a premixed turbulent V flame is first performed, to further analyze the behavior of various flame quantities and to study key ingredients of premixed turbulent combustion modeling. Flame surface density, subgridscale variance of progress variables, and unresolved turbulent fluxes are analyzed. These simulations include fully detailed chemistry from a flamegenerated tabulation (FPI) and the analysis focuses on the dynamics of the thin flame front. Then, a novel subgrid scale closure for large eddy simulation of premixed turbulent combustion (FSDPDF) is proposed. It combines the flame surface density (FSD) approach with a presumed probability density function (PDF) of the progress variable that is used in FPI chemistry tabulation. The FSD is useful for introducing in the presumed PDF the influence of the spatially filtered thin reaction zone evolving within the subgrid. This is achieved via the exact relation between the PDF and the FSD. This relation involves the conditional filtered average of the magnitude of the gradient of the progress variable. In the modeling, this conditional filtered mean is approximated from the filtered gradient of the progress variable of the FPI laminar flame. Balancemore »

The velocitycomposition probability density function (pdf) model coupled with a k{var{underscore}epsilon}based mean flow computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model was used to describe the turbulent fluid flow, heat transfer, chemistry, and their interactions in a bluffbody, lean, premixed, methaneair combustor. Measured data including velocity, temperature, and chemical species concentrations were used to evaluate the model. The chemistry calculations were performed with an in situ lookup tabulation method. A reduced, 5step chemical mechanism for describing fuel oxidation, CO, and NO chemistry was used in the model. NO formation from thermal, N{sub 2}Ointermediate, and prompt pathways was included in the 5step mechanism. Anmore »

Stretchrate relationships for turbulent premixed combustion LES subgrid models measured using temporally resolved diagnostics
Temporally resolved measurements of turbulenceflame interaction were used to experimentally determine relationships for the strainrate and curvature stretchrate exerted on a premixed flame surface. These relationships include a series of transfer functions that are analogous to, but not equal to, stretchefficiency functions. The measurements were obtained by applying highrepetitionrate particle image velocimetry in a turbulent slot Bunsen flame and were able to resolve the range of turbulent scales that cause flame surface straining and wrinkling. Fluid control masses were tracked in a Lagrangian manner as they interacted with the flame surface. From each interaction, the spatially and temporally filtered subgridmore » 
Evaluation of scalar mixing and time scale models in PDF simulations of a turbulent premixed flame
Numerical simulation results obtained with a transported scalar probability density function (PDF) method are presented for a piloted turbulent premixed flame. The accuracy of the PDF method depends on the scalar mixing model and the scalar time scale model. Three widely used scalar mixing models are evaluated: the interaction by exchange with the mean (IEM) model, the modified Curl's coalescence/dispersion (CD) model and the Euclidean minimum spanning tree (EMST) model. The three scalar mixing models are combined with a simple model for the scalar time scale which assumes a constant C{sub {phi}}=12 value. A comparison of the simulation results withmore » 
Modeling ignition and chemical structure of partially premixed turbulent flames using tabulated chemistry
Correctly reproducing the autoignition and the chemical composition of partially premixed turbulent flames is a challenge for numerical simulations of industrial applications such as diesel engines. A new model DFPCM (diffusion flame presumed conditional moment) is proposed based on a coupling between the FPI (flame prolongation of ILDM) tabulation method and the PCM (presumed conditional moment) approach. Because the flamelets used to build the table are laminar diffusion flames, DFPCM cannot be used for industrial applications like Diesel engines due to excessive CPU requirements. Therefore two new models called AIPCM (autoignition presumed conditional moment) and ADFPCM (approximated diffusion flames presumedmore »
