Abstract : We study premixed flame dynamics using DNS and EEM approaches. DNS solves compressible Navier-Stokes equations with simplified chemistry. To reduce computational costs and increase efifciency, we analyse and develop a modified staggered scheme. Treatment of acoustic waves at boundaries is known to slightly square cylindrical flames. We try to explain these unphysical distortions by highlighting the poor modeling of fluid acceleration when mainstrean is transverse to outow. A parametric and statistical study of expanding flames is carried out in 2D and also for an expanding (3cm)3 flame. The EEM approach models the flame as an infinitely thin interface. This perturbative strategy dramatically decreases cpu costs. Simulations are carried out and compared to DNS results to check the ability of EEM modeling to give quantitative results.
