Abstract
Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) with the first order Conditional Moment Closure (CMC) approach of a nitrogen-diluted hydrogen jet, igniting in a turbulent co-flowing hot air stream, are discussed. A detailed mechanism (nine species, 19 reactions) is used to represent the chemistry. Our study covers the following aspects: CFD mesh resolution; CMC mesh resolution; inlet boundary conditions and conditional scalar dissipation rate modelling. The Amplitude Mapping Closure for the conditional scalar dissipation rate produces acceptable results. We also compare different options to calculate conditional quantities in CMC resolution. The trends in the experimental observations are in general well reproduced. The auto-ignition length decreases with an increase in co-flow temperature and increases with increase in co-flow velocity. The phenomena are not purely chemically controlled: the turbulence and mixing play also affect the location of auto-ignition. In order to explore the effect of turbulence, two options were applied: random noise and turbulence generator based on digital filter. It was found that stronger turbulence promotes ignition.
