Abstract:

An obstacle to the accurate simulation of the combustion processes in various turbulent combustion phenomena is the inability to model all scales of interactions on the computational grid. Several modeling strategies are presently used to overcome this obstacle. The laminar flamelet approach to combustion appears to provide a means of resolving many of the complexities associated with turbulent combustion. Unfortunately, however, problems exist with the temporal and spatial temperature and soot species specifications in heavily sooting and radiating flames.
