A hybrid algorithm for the joint PDF equation of turbulent reactive flows. (English) Zbl 1030.76046

From the summary: We present a particle-finite volume hybrid algorithm for joint velocity-frequency-composition PDF method for turbulent reactive flows. This method is a combination of a finite volume scheme and a particle method. The finite volume scheme is used to solve the Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations, and the particle method is used to solve the joint PDF transport equation. The motivation is to reduce the bias and the statistical error, and to have an algorithm which is more efficient than stand-alone particle-mesh methods. The properties of the new algorithm are demonstrated by results for a nonpremixed piloted-jet flame test case.
