Impact of the chemical description on a Large Eddy Simulation of a lean partially premixed swirled flame
Comptes Rendus. Mécanique, Volume 341 (2013) no. 1-2, pp. 247-256.

Six different chemical reduced mechanisms are used in a Large Eddy Simulation of a lean partially premixed swirled methane/air flame in order to investigate their capability to describe the flame structure and the species concentrations comprising the pollutant CO species. The mechanisms range from a two-step fitted mechanism to an analytical scheme composed by 13 species and 73 reactions. Following the classical approach, the performances of the mechanisms have been preliminary analyzed on laminar unstrained free flames. In addition, results for strained premixed counterflow flames have been discussed in order to evaluate their response to turbulence in a very simple way. This work demonstrates that the capability of a mechanism to describe three-dimensional complex turbulent premixed flames could be estimated on results for laminar one-dimensional unstrained and strained flames.

Six cinétiques chimiques réduites sont utilisées pour le calcul dʼune flamme swirlée en régime partiellement prémélangé pauvre avec lʼapproche de Simulation aux Grandes Echelles afin dʼévaluer leur capacité à décrire la structure de flamme et la composition chimique, y compris lʼespèce polluante CO. Les mécanismes cinétiques testés diffèrent par leur complexité, le plus simple étant un mécanisme global à deux étapes, le plus complexe étant un schéma analytique comprenant 13 espèces et 73 réactions. Pour évaluer leurs performances, les mécanismes sont tout dʼabord testés classiquement dans des flammes laminaires prémélangées non étirées se propageant librement. Puis, des calculs de flammes laminaires prémélangées étirées à countre-courant sont analysés pour évaluer simplement la réponse des différents schémas à la turbulence. Ce travail montre que la capacité dʼun mécanisme à décrire correctement une flamme turbulente prémélangée dans une configuration complexe peut être anticipée en analysant les réponses du mécanisme dans des flammes prémélangées laminaires non étirées et étirées.
