A Filtered-Laminar-Flame PDF subgrid scale closure for LES of Premixed Turbulent Flames : Application to a Stratified Bluff-body burner with Differential Diffusion

Abstract : A sub-grid scale closure for Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of turbulent combustion, based on physical space filtering of laminar flames is presented. The proposed formalism relies on a presumed probability density function (PDF) derived from the filtered laminar flames and flamelet tabulated chemistry. The combustion LES filter size is not fixed in this novel approach when sub-grid scale wrinkling occurs, but calibrated depending on the local level of unresolved scalar fluctuations. The model was validated by simulating 1D filtered laminar flames and 2D Bunsen flames. Subsequently, the model was tested on a 3D turbulent scenario by performing LES of the premixed and stratified configurations of the Cambridge swirl burner, experimentally studied by Sweeney and co-workers. Comparison of simulation and experiments for both the premixed and stratified configurations showed good agreement emphasizing the model characteristiscs. Instantaneous and time averaged LES data were analyzed to extract
