Application of the REDIM approach in joint scalar PDF simulations of bluff-body stabilised flames

abstract
Transported joint scalar probability density function (PDF) results are presented for ‘Sydney Flames HM1 and HM3’, jet type turbulent flames with strong turbulence – chemistry interaction, stabilized behind a bluff body. Chemistry is modelled by means of the novel Reaction-Diffusion Manifold (REDIM) technique, by which a detailed chemistry mechanism is reduced, including diffusion effects. Only N2 and CO2 mass fractions are used as reduced coordinates. A second-moment closure RANS turbulence model is applied. As micro-mixing model, the modified Curl’s coalescence/dispersion (CD) and the Euclidean Minimum Spanning Tree (EMST) models are used. In physical space, agreement between experimental data and simulation results is good up to the neck zone, for the unconditional mean values of velocity, mixture fraction, major and some minor chemical species. Conditional mean profiles in mixture fraction space are also in reasonable agreement with experiments up to the neck zone, though conditional fluctuations are under-predicted. CD generally yields better predictions for the level of fluctuations in mixture fraction space than EMST, but this is partly due to unrealistic particle evolution in composition space. In general, simulations using the REDIM approach for reduction of detailed C2-chemistry confirm earlier findings for micro-mixing model behaviour, obtained with C1-chemistry.
