Modeling complex chemical reactions in flows with turbulent, diffusive mixing
Abstract
Methods for modeling single chemical reactions in flows with turbulent mixing of reactants with specified or modeled degree of segregation were demonstrated. Proposals for modeling such reactions were also presented and tested for turbulent mixing in the case of turbulent diffusion over large distances. These methods generally involve some sort of algebraic closure at some level of the correlation equations to be solved. That problem is complicated by the necessity to model the growth of segregation as the components mix on a macroscale as well as its decay as components mix on a molecular scale. A method for modeling complex reactions in turbulent, diffusive mixing involves the simulation of the diffusion and mixing by coalescencedispersion.
