Combining Discrete Equations Method and Upwind Downwind-Controlled Splitting for Non-Reacting and Reacting Two-Fluid Computations

Abstract : When numerically investigating multiphase phenomena during severe accidents in a reactorsystem, characteristic lengths of the multi-fluid zone (non-reactive and reactive) are foundto be much smaller than the volume of the reactor containment, which makes the directmodeling of the configuration hardly achievable. Alternatively, we propose to consider thephysical multiphase mixture zone as an infinitely thin interface. Then, the reactive Riemannsolver is inserted into the Reactive Discrete Equations Method (RDEM) to compute highspeed combustion waves represented by discontinuous interfaces. An anti-diffusive approachis also coupled with RDEM to accurately simulate reactive interfaces. Increased robustnessand efficiency when computing both multiphase interfaces and reacting flows are achievedthanks to an original upwind downwind-controlled splitting method (UDCS). UDCS is capableof accurately solving interfaces on multi-dimensional unstructured meshes, includingreacting fronts for both deflagration and detonation configurations.
