Abstract

Multiple mapping conditioning (MMC) combines the probability density function (PDF) and the conditional moment closure (CMC) methods via the application of a generalized mapping function to a prescribed reference space. Stochastic and deterministic formulations of MMC exist, and the deterministic implementation has been applied here to a piloted jet diffusionflame (Sandia Flame D). This paper focuses on the feasibility of MMC and its closures for real (laboratory) flames and a relatively simple one-dimensional reference space that represents mixture fraction has been used. The remaining chemically reactive species are implicitly conditioned on mixture fraction and their fluctuations around the conditional mean are neglected. This work primarily evaluates the ability of the deterministic form of MMC to provide accurate and consistent closures for the mixture fraction PDF and the conditional scalar dissipation which do not rely on presumed shape functions for the PDF such as the commonly used β-PDFβ-PDF. Computed probability distributions agree well with measurements, and a detailed comparison of the modeled conditional and mean scalar dissipation with experimental data and conventional closures demonstrate MMC’s potential. Predictions of reactive species and temperature are in good agreement with experimental data and similar in quality to singly conditioned, first-order CMC predictions. MMC therefore provides an attractive-since consistent-alternative approach for the modeling of scalar mixing in turbulent reacting flows.
