Abstract:

PDF methods provide a useful calculation tool for flows involving turbulent combustion. To date, an area that has received little attention is the application of these methods close to walls. The objective of the research was to develop near-wall treatments, thus facilitating the use of PDF methods to calculate various phenomena involving turbulent reactive flows near walls. Two successful approaches have been developed, implemented and demonstrated. The first uses wall functions, the second uses elliptic relaxation and solves the PDF equations all the way to the wall.
