Effect of the turbulence modeling in large-eddy simulations of nonpremixed flames undergoing extinction and reignition
Conference contribution, 2017
Simulating practical combustion systems requires the approximation of the interaction between turbulence, molecular transport and chemical reactions. Turbulent combustion models are used for this purpose, but their behavior is difficult to anticipate based on their mathematical formulations, making the use of numerical experimentation necessary. Therefore, the present work explores the effect of three turbulent-combustion models, two eddy-viscosity models, and their parameters on a combustion problem which is notoriously difficult to model: flame extinction and reignition. For this purpose, two types of temporal jets are considered, and direct-numerical-simulation results are compared qualitatively with those from large-eddy simulations.
