Abstract

This paper demonstrates that a large Eddy simulation (LES) combustion model based on tabulated chemistry and Eulerian stochastic fields can successfully describe the flame dynamics of a premixed turbulent swirl flame. The combustion chemistry is tabulated from one-dimensional burner-stabilized flamelet computations in dependence on progress variable and enthalpy. The progress variable allows to efficiently include a detailed reaction scheme, while the dependence on enthalpy describes the effect of heat losses on the reaction rate. The turbulence-chemistry interaction is modeled by eight Eulerian stochastic fields. An LES of a premixed swirl burner with a broadband velocity excitation is performed to investigate the flame dynamics, i.e., the response of heat release rate to upstream velocity perturbations. In particular, the flame impulse response and the flame transfer function (FTF) are identified from LES time series data. Simulation results for a range of power ratings are in good agreement with the experimental data.
