Prediction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons formation using flamelet approach with additional transport equations

It is known that the formation of minor species such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) cannot be well captured by the standard flamelet/progress-variable (FPV) model. In this study, the extended method in which additional transport equations for PAHs were solved (FPV-TE model) was verified in the numerical simulations of a laminar counter-flow diffusion flame. The numerical results obtained from FPV-TE model were in better agreement with the solutions of the detailed chemistry than that in the standard FPV model in terms of the mass fractions of PAHs.
