A self-contained progress variable space solution method for thermochemical variables and flame speed in freely-propagating premixed flamelets

Abstract : Flamelet models for premixed combustion, which are based on equations formulated and solved in progress variable space, have been proposed in the past, but have not been adopted for chemistry reduction methods. This is due to one limitation of these models: they need a closure for both the magnitude and the shape of the gradient (or scalar dissipation rate) of the progress variable, which is essential for an accurate prediction of the flame displacement speed. So far, solution methods for the aforementioned models require gradient information as an input, which is either modelled and non-generic, or extracted from a previous physical space flame solution for the analogous problem. The objective of this work is to provide a self-contained solution method for freely-propagating premixed flamelets in progress variable space, by solving an additional flamelet equation for the gradient of the progress variable. With this, the novel method provides both magnitude and shape of the gradient. Studying hydrogen-air and methane-air configurations, it is demonstrated that an accurate prediction of the laminar flame speed without the necessity for further input parameters can be obtained.
