By Rodney O. Fox

This survey of the present cutting-edge in computational versions for turbulent reacting flows conscientiously analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of a number of the strategies defined. Rodney Fox specializes in the formula of useful versions rather than numerical matters bobbing up from their answer. He develops a theoretical framework in response to the one-point, one-time joint likelihood density functionality (PDF). The examine finds that each one mostly hired types for turbulent reacting flows will be formulated when it comes to the joint PDF of the chemical species and enthalpy.

Thus, it is a conditional expected value. H (α, β) is a weighting kernel to generate the contribution of fluid elements with age β to the mean concentration at age α. Similarly, in the transported PDF codes discussed in Chapter 6, a spatial weighting kernel of the form h W (s) appears in the definition of the local mean concentrations. 18) is numerically unstable for small tiem (Fox 1989). For numerical work, it should thus be replaced by an equivalent integro-differential equation (Fox 1991). 14 Turbulent reacting flows Note that the mean concentrations in the PFR are just the volume-averaged concentrations of the two environments with the same age.

In general, zone models are applicable to chemical reactions for which local micromixing effects can be ignored. 15) will scale with the local integral-scale turbulence frequency19 (Pope 2000). Thus, strictly speaking, zone models20 will be applicable to turbulent reacting flows for which the local chemical time scales are all greater than the integral time scale of the turbulence. For chemical reactions with shorter time scales, micromixing can have a significant impact on the species concentrations in each zone, and at the reactor outlet (Weinstein and Adler 1967; Paul and Treybal 1971; Ott and Rys 1975; Bourne and Toor 1977; Bourne et al.

For reacting-scalar turbulent mixing, the chemical source term poses novel, and technically more difficult, closure problems. 3 Chemical source term Despite the progress in CFD for inert-scalar transport, it was recognized early on that the treatment of turbulent reacting flows offers unique challenges (Corrsin 1958; Danckwerts 1958). 28). Nevertheless, it has also been recognized that because the chemical source term depends only on the local molar concentrations c and temperature T : S(φ), where φT = (cA , cB , .
