Large Eddy Simulation of Turbulent Reacting Shear Layers Including Finite-Rate Chemistry and Detailed Diffusion Processes

Large eddy simulations (LES) of turbulent temporal shear layers with hydrogen chemistry are performed. In these simulations, approximate deconvolution is applied as an implicit subgrid-scale modeling approach to a reacting flow in combination with a steady flamelet model for the filtered heat release term. No additional heuristical or physical subgrid models are used. The formulation of the flamelet equations in physical space does not only allow to consider a detailed reaction scheme and the extinguished phase but also to take into account detailed diffusion mechanisms (Soret and Dufour effects, multicomponent diffusion coefficients). Two different levels of diffusion approximations are investigated in this work, the aim of which is twofold: Firstly, to verify approximate deconvolution as a tool for convective transport of mass, momentum and energy in gas flow, by comparing the LES results with those of a direct numerical simulation and secondly, to investigate the influence of detailed diffusion on the laminar flamelets and the LES results.
