DNS study of dependence of bulk consumption velocity in a constantdensity reacting flow on turbulence and mixture characteristics
(2017) In Physics of Fluids 29(6). Abstract
3D Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) study of propagation of a singlereaction wave in forced, statistically stationary, homogeneous, isotropic, and constantdensity turbulence was performed in order to evaluate both developing U^{t} _{T} and fully developed U^{s} _{T} bulk turbulent consumption velocities by independently varying a ratio of 0.5 ≤ u'=S_{L} ≤ 90 of the r.m.s. turbulent velocity to the laminar wave speed and a ratio of 0.39 ≤ L11=δF ≤ 12.5 of the longitudinal integral length scale of the turbulence to the laminar wave thickness. Accordingly, the Damköhler Da = (L_{11}S_{L})=(u'δ_{F}) and Karlovitz Ka = δ_{F}=(S_{L}τ_{η}) numbers were... (More)
3D Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) study of propagation of a singlereaction wave in forced, statistically stationary, homogeneous, isotropic, and constantdensity turbulence was performed in order to evaluate both developing U^{t} _{T} and fully developed U^{s} _{T} bulk turbulent consumption velocities by independently varying a ratio of 0.5 ≤ u'=S_{L} ≤ 90 of the r.m.s. turbulent velocity to the laminar wave speed and a ratio of 0.39 ≤ L11=δF ≤ 12.5 of the longitudinal integral length scale of the turbulence to the laminar wave thickness. Accordingly, the Damköhler Da = (L_{11}S_{L})=(u'δ_{F}) and Karlovitz Ka = δ_{F}=(S_{L}τ_{η}) numbers were varied from 0.01 to 24.7 and from 0.36 to 587, respectively. Here, τ is the Kolmogorov time scale. The obtained DNS data show that, at sufficiently low Da, the fully developed ratio of U^{s} _{T}/u' is mainly controlled by Da and scales as p Da. However, such a scaling should not be extrapolated to high Da. The higher Da (or the lower Ka), the less pronounced dependence of U^{s} _{T}/u' on a ratio of L_{11}/δ_{F}. Moreover, scaling laws U_{T} α u'αS^{1α} _{L}(L_{11}=δ_{F})^{β} are substantially different for developing U^{t} _{T} and fully developed U^{s} _{T} , i.e., the scaling exponents α and, especially, β depend on the wavedevelopment time. Furthermore, α and, especially, depend on a method used to evaluate the developing U^{t} _{T} . Such effects can contribute to significant scatter of expressions for U_{T} or S_{T} as a function of (u', S_{L}, L_{11}, δ_{F}), obtained by parameterizing various experimental databases.
