Subgrid Reaction-Diffusion Closure for Large Eddy Simulations Using the Linear-Eddy Model
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2019
Turbulent combustion models approximate the interaction between turbulence, molecular transport and chemical reactions. Among the many available turbulent combustion models, the present focus is the linear-eddy model (LEM) used as a subgrid combustion model for large eddy simulations. In particular this paper introduces a new LEM closure with the reaction-rate approach to close the filtered chemical source terms in the governing equations for species mass fractions and enthalpy. The new approach is tested using a non-premixed syngas flame and a bluff-body stabilized premixed flame problem. Simulation results are compared to data from a direct numerical simulation and experiments. This comparison shows that mean and rms quantities compare well with experiments and are in the range of previous simulation studies. These results are obtained with a pressure-based and unstructured computational-fluid-dynamics solver, an approach that is preferred in industry.
