Abstract

In this work, a Large eddy simulation (LES) method and a tabulated chemistry approach according to the Flamelet Generated Manifold (FGM) strategy are coupled to numerically study the interactions of turbulent isothermal and reacting flows stemming from two aligned jets providing alternately fuel (natural gas) and oxidant (pure oxygen gas). The jets feature different geometries and deliver unequal momentums at the boundaries. The effect of oxygen in comparison to air environment on the FGM tabulation and results is pointed out. In addition, the impact of combustion on the flow and mixing field evolvement is analyzed. The LES relies on a dynamic Smagorinsky subgrid scale (SGS) model and a linear eddy diffusivity ansatz to close the SGS stresses and the SGS scalar fluxes for describing the turbulent flow field and the turbulent scalar field, respectively. For model assessment, available laser-based experimental data are used for model validation. In particular the numerical results are compared with available experimental data for the flow field. The latter are gained experimentally by the Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and laser tomography, respectively. In the first part of this paper, the jets interaction process is studied for the isothermal case while the oxy-fuel combustion in the reacting case is analyzed in the second part. The analysis is achieved in terms of statistical quantities for the flow velocity, mixture fraction, chemical species and temperature. An overall satisfactory agreement is reported.
