Simulation aux grandes échelles implicite et explicite de la combustion supersonique

Abstract : This dissertation is devoted to the Large-eddy simulation (LES) study of a wall hydrogen underexpanded jet in a supersonic crossflow of vitiated air. This configuration is representative of flow conditions encountered in aerospace engines such as supersonic combustion ramjet (scramjets). Indeed, future of high-speed transport systems heavily depends on the development of this type of engine. Under such conditions, the high temperature flow of vitiated air is maintained supersonic in the combustion chamber to reduce effects of heating and dissociation. The mixing and combustion processes that develop downstream of the fuel jet are studied. This work is based on the use of a high fidelity numerical simulation: CREAMS (Compressible REActive Multi-species Solver) which is developed at the Pprime Institute. This computational solver makes use of high precision numerical schemes: a 3rd order Runge–Kutta scheme for the time integration combines with a 7th order WENO and 8th order centered scheme for the spatial discretisation. Non-reactive simulations allow to characterize the importance of shock/turbulence interactions with special attention paid to the description of the unresolved (i.e. sub-grid scale) scalar fluctuations. The reactive simulations allow to perform a detailed analysis of the stabilization mode and turbulent combustion regimes tha are encountered, thus providing valuable information about the possible adequacy of the available representation for these extreme conditions.
