Two t ypes of mixing sub-models are evaluated in connection with a joint-scalar probability density function method for turbulent nonpremixed combustion. Model calculations are made and compared to simulation results for homogeneously distributed methane-air reaction zones, mixing and reacting in decaying turbulence within a two-dimensional enclosed domain.(More)
Introduction In conventional energy conversion devices (e.g., gas turbines and piston engines) useful work is produced in a two-step process: conversion of chemical energy to sensible energy by combustion, followed by work extraction by expansion. The first of the two processes typically occurs on a very short time scale and is essentially complete before(More)
