Title Cyber-Based Turbulent Combustion Simulation.
Publication Date Feb 2012
Media Count 10p
Personal Author J. J. Shang
Abstract In an attempt to develop a viable option for complex turbulent combustion research, the flamelet concept is investigated by developing an interdisciplinary modeling and simulation capability via local grid refinement technique. The inherent deficiency at the grid block interface of the local polynomial refinement approach using the Gauss Quadrature formulation is remedied by a differential reconstruction scheme. The symmetry, coercivity, boundness, and adjoint consistency conditions of solutions at the grid block interface for combustion simulation are enforced for the diffusion dominant equation. A multiple-point, unequal spaced, differencing reconstruction approximation to preserve the spectral accurate and to increase computationally efficient is achieved and systematically validated by the L2 norm projection approach. The developed numerical scheme has been demonstrated to retain comparable spectral accuracy and is thrice more computationally efficient than the classic approach. The intrinsic behavior of the unique algorithm has successfully applied to the counter-flow, air-hydrogen combustion. The highly stretched flame that approaching the extinct limit is successfully simulated; the thin frame structure is captured by the developed numerical method with a greater clarity in resolving the detailed thermal layer of the flame front in a direct comparison with a benchmark of AFRL. The newly developed computational interdisciplinary simulation capability has been transferred to AFRL and applied to a path-finding application for combustion with radiative exchange in hypersonic scramjet.
