Computations of nonreacting flameholder flows with a zonal grid method
The "zonal grid method" is widely used to alleviate the difficulties for flow field calculations
with complex geometry. In the present study, a patched grid method is employed
in the computation of flow fields behind a two-ring flameholder which forms a
A standard K - Îµ model is used to close the system. The calculation is performed by
using a SIMPLE type algorithm in two subdomains in a body-fitted coordinate system
With nonstaggered grid arrangements. The concept of conservative interpolation technique
is applied to treat the flux conservation across the interface. The effect of the
distance between these two rings on the flow pattern is studied. It is found the distance
of the rings either in the axial direction or in the radial direction does not change the
strength of the recirculation zone, but alters the flow pattern. The predicted streamlines,
the turbulence kinetic energy K, and the reverse mass flow rate are presented.
