From G - Equation to Michelson - Sivashinsky Equation in Turbulent Premixed Combustion Modelling
MetadataShow full item record
It is well known that the Michelson-Sivashinky equation describes hydrodynamic instabilities in turbulent premixed combustion. Here a formulation of the flame front propagation based on the G-equation and on stochastic fluctuations imposed to the average flame position is considered to derive the Michelson-Sivashinky equation from a modelling point of view. The same approach was shown to reproduce the G-equation along the motion of the mean flame position, when the stochastic fluctuations are removed, as well ast the Zimont & Lipatnikov model, when a plane front is assumed. The new results here presented support this promising approach as a novel and general stochastic formulation for modelling turbulent premixed combustion.
