Abstract [en]

In the search for an improved understanding of jet-flame dynamics we here compare predictions from large-eddy simulations (LES) and measurements using schlieren and holographic interferometry of a round turbulent jet diffusion flame. The studies concern a turbulent propane-air (C3H8-O-2/N-2) diffusion flame under ambient conditions at a Reynolds number of Re = 10(4). The interferometric measurements were performed with an all-electronic method, pulsed TV holography, using a pulsed laser and a fast charge coupled device (CCD) camera. The LES calculations use the probability density function (PDF) flamelet approach with a beta function as the probability density function, whereas the subgrid turbulence is modeled with a one-equation eddy viscosity model. In order to validate the LES model quantitative comparisons of first-order statistical moments of the velocity were first made with available data for nonreactive jets. The LES model captures the statistics well. The next step in the validation process concerns comparing the jet-flame development between LES and the schlieren and pulsed TV holography data. To this end the results of the LES calculations were used to simulate instantaneous interference patterns using ray tracing. The LES model describes the overall behavior of the flame successfully.
