Abstract:

Combustion, or burning, has been defined as a high-temperature exothermic redox chemical reaction between a fuel (the reductant) and an oxidant, usually atmospheric oxygen, that produces oxidized, often gaseous products, in a mixture termed as smoke. The modeling of turbulent combustion is complex and requires the consideration of different physico-chemical processes involving a vast range of time and length scales as well as a large number of scalar quantities. In modeling combustion, the fuel was considered as single gas species, the air and products referred to as “lumped species”. By implication, therefore the fuel for the combustion was considered a lumped species representing a mixture of gas species that transport together (i.e., the lumped species has a single set of transport properties); the lumbed species was assumed to react together. From our modeling simplication, the lumped species was treated as a single species; consequently, to reduce the number of transport equations from solving explicitly seven transport equations to the lowest possible number of equations we assume a single-step reaction. it is observed that irrespective of the computational frame number as well as the computational timestep, the maximum temperature field is 1000oC and the maximum heat release rate per unit area is 150 kW/m2.
