The sources and sinks of the last panel were associated wih micro mixing ie with coupling and splitting In addition to these rates of production of one fluid and corresponding diminution of the others fluid D is produced from fluid C only at the rate MC CHEMRATE CHEMRATE is of course the rate of chemical conversion of the unburned fuel in fluid C to combustion products It is the element of the model which allows as EBU did not chemical kinetic effects to be introduced rationally e The first application of the 4 fluid model The first application of the 4 fluid model was to the same problem as that for which the EBU was invented namely that of steady turbulent flame spread in a plane walled duct Through the upstream end flows both a stream of unburned combustible mixture and a separate but thinner stream of fully burned products to serve as an igniter shown below STEADY TURBULENT FLAME SPREAD IN A PLANE WALLED DUCT ENTRANCE CHANNEL WALL EXIT UNBURNED GAS FLAME SPREADING TO WALL BURNED GAS SYMMETRY PLANE f Remarkable facts about the experimental findings Experiments of this kind by Hottel Scurlock and Williams 1954 have shown that the rate of spread of the flame as measured by its angle for a fixed inlet stream velocity is very little dependent on the fuel air ratio of the incoming mixture the flow velocity of the incoming mixture or the temperature of the incoming mixture However the flame can be suddenly extinguished if variations of any of these quantities becomes too extreme Note Strictly speaking Hottel et al used a bluff body flame holder rather that a co flowing igniting stream but the difference has little significance g The numerical simulation This process has been simulated by activating the 4 fluid model within the PHOENICS computer program operating in parabolic ie marching integration mode The magnitude of the MIXRATE quantity was computed in the same manner as for the eddy break up model ie as proportional to the square root of the turbulence energy divided by the length scale The findings were in accordance with experiments in that for a given MIXRATE the flame angle was almost independent of flow velocity or CHEMRATE but once CHEMRATE was made low enough flame propagation ceased The following pictures illustrate the predictions for a particular pair of MIXRATE and CHEMRATE values Flow is from left to right The top boundary of the diagram represents the duct wall The lower boundary represents the symmetry axis The contours are those of fluid A the unburned incoming fluid CHEMRATE here called chemfact is large This implies that the flame is mixing rate limited duct1 Flow is from left to right The top boundary of the diagram represents te duct wall The lower boundary represents the symmetry axis The contours are those of fluid D the products of combustion duct2 Flow is from left to right The top boundary of the diagram represents te duct wall The

d 3 4 k 3 2 e and C m C d 0 09 THE OVERALL SOLUTION ALGORITHM The gas and particle equations are solved separately using well known mathematical techniques However because the gas and particle equations are linked the solution procedure has to iterate between both algorithms in the following manner Solve the gas phase without particles perhaps for many sweeps Integrate the particle equations using the current gas field and compute the inter phase sources Solve the gas phase again including the new particle sources Repeat steps 2 and 3 until both sets of equations have converged SOLUTION OF THE PARTICLE EQUATIONS The numerical integration of the particle equations takes place according to the following sequence The Lagrangian time step is calculated The particle is moved The particle properties velocities temperatures etc at the new position are calculated The interphase source terms are calculated An overview of each of these steps will now be given The Lagrangian time step is estimated by GENTRA based on a user set fraction of the minimum cell crossing time This in turn is based on the minimum cell size and the maximum particle velocity component The particle is not allowed to jump more than one cell per time step At boundaries or blockages the particle is placed on the cell boundary by reducing the time step The new particle location x n is obtained by integrating the particle position equation as x n x 0 U 0p dt where x 0 and U 0p are the location and velocity vector at the start of the Lagrangian time step The integration is always performed in a Cartesian coordinate system At the new particle location the new values of local fluid properties are obtained and then the particle equations are integrated analytically For velocity components in Cartesian and polar grids the value at the particle location is obtained by interpolation from the neighbouring nodes For all other variables and velocity resolutes in BFC grids the cell centre value is used As particles traverse each cell exchange of heat mass and momentum may occur For example a particle traveling faster than the surrounding fluid will be decelerated and will in turn accelerate the fluid Sources expressing these interchanges are computed once the particle equations have been integrated They are stored and will be used the next time PHOENICS solves the gas phase equations IMPLEMENTATION IN PHOENICS Pre processing for GENTRA is carried out in the VR Editor main menu GENTRA itself is attached to PHOENICS as a GROUND station parts of which are not supplied in source It is divided into four main sections GENTRA which is called from GREX and contains the flow control Users are not normally expected to modify this GENIUS called from GENTRA This is a blank user routine for replacing or supplementing built in physical laws GPROPS also called from GENTRA It allows users to add in their own property laws for the particles and GENLIB the object library
