This numerical study deals with the hazardous ignition of a jet flame in a vitiated co-flow. A novel formulation, based on a passive scalar variable, will be presented to predict hydrogen auto-ignition events. The model, derived from the theoretical analysis of the Jacobian, correctly describes the appearance and absence of auto-ignition in complex configurations based on initial thermodynamic and mixture conditions. No chemical reaction and species equations are required to perform the simulations. Results of Lattice Boltzmann Methods (LBM) simulations of a 3D H 2 /N 2 Cabra flame will be presented using a detailed H 2-Air mechanism. Validation against experimental and numerical results will be provided for the lift-off (distance to auto-ignition). The passive scalar predictions are successfully compared with the reactive simulations. The results show a potential extension of this model to an extensive spectrum of hydrogen safety and large-scale turbulent combustion applications.

The pressure-based hybrid lattice-Boltzmann method presented by Farag & al (Phys. Fluids 2020) is assessed for the simulation of buoyancy driven flows. The model is first validated on Rayleigh-Benard and Rayleigh-Taylor two-dimensional cases. A large-eddy simulation of a turbulent forced plume is then carried out, and results are validated against experiments. A good overall agreement is obtained, both for mean and fluctuations quantities, as well as global entertainment. The self-similarity character of the plume in the far-field is also recovered.

A new low-Mach algorithm for the thermal lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is proposed aiming at reducing the computational cost of thermal flow simulations in the low Mach number limit. The well-known low Mach number approximation is adopted to accelerate the simulations by enlarging the time step through re-scaling the psuedoacoustic speed to the same order of the fluid motion velocity. This specific process is inspired by the similarity between the artificial compressibility method and the isothermal LBM and is further extended to its thermal counterpart. It must be emphasized that such low-Mach acceleration strategy is in a general form, thus can be easily applied to other compressible LB methods. The present method overcomes the drawback of the classical pressure gradient scaling method due to the pressure gradient changing. The new algorithm is validated by various well-documented academic test cases in laminar [one dimensional gravity column, 2D (two dimensional) rising thermal bubble, and 2D differentially heated square cavity] and turbulent [3D (three dimensional) Taylor–Green vortex and 3D heated cylinder] regimes. All the results show excellent agreement with the reference data and high computational efficiency.

A general methodology is introduced to build conservative numerical models for fluid simulations based on segregated schemes, where mass, momentum and energy equations are solved by different methods. It is here especially designed for developing new numerical discretizations of the total energy equation, adapted to a thermal coupling with the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The proposed methodology is based on a linear equivalence with standard discretizations of the entropy equation, which, as a characteristic variable of the Euler system, allows efficiently decoupling the energy equation with the LBM. To this extent, any LBM scheme is equivalently written under a finite-volume formulation involving fluxes, which are further included in the total energy equation as numerical corrections. The viscous heat production is implicitly considered thanks to the knowledge of the LBM momentum flux. Three models are subsequently derived: a first-order upwind, a Lax-Wendroff and a third-order Godunov-type schemes. They are assessed on standard academic test cases: a Couette flow, entropy spot and vortex convections, a Sod shock tube, several two-dimensional Riemann problems and a shock-vortex interaction. Three key features are then exhibited: 1) the models are conservative by construction, recovering correct jump relations across shock waves, 2) the stability and accuracy of entropy modes can be explicitly controlled, 3) the low dissipation of the LBM for isentropic phenomena is preserved.

In turbulent premixed flames, not only the isotropy of velocity fluctuations is altered by the thermal expansion effect, the dissipative structure of the turbulent flowfield and the flow topology are also deeply influenced by the flame. Considering the joint probability density function (JPDF) of the second and third invariants of the velocity gradient tensor (VGT)-or its traceless counterpart-is a classical way to educe the topology of turbulent flows at these smallest scales. These quantities are analyzed by considering direct numerical simulation databases of premixed flame kernel growth in homogeneous isotropic turbulence (HIT). Two conditions of turbulence-combustion interaction (TCI) are considered, which correspond to two distinct values of the Bray number. The analysis of the VGT shows that the propagating premixed flame and its associated density variations significantly modify the turbulence structure and flow topology. To understand this behavior as the flow interacts with the flame front, Lagrangian dynamics of the VGT and its invariants are studied by considering the conditional mean rate of change vectors. Special emphasis is thus placed on the Lagrangian evolution equations (LEE) of these invariants. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is first time that such budgets are scrutinized in premixed combustion conditions. The pressure Hessian contribution to the VGT invariants transport equations is shown to be one of the leading-order terms in this evolution, making it critically important to the flow dynamics and turbulence structure.

This letter reports the first large eddy simulation of a turbulent flame using a Lattice-Boltzmann model. To that end, simulation of a bluff-body stabilized propane-air flame is carried out, showing an agreement similar to those available in the literature. Computational costs are also reported, indicating that Lattice-Boltzmann modelling of reactive flows is competitive, with around 1000cpuh required to simulate one residence time in the 1,5m burner.

A new compressible pressure-based Lattice Boltzmann Method is proposed to simulate humid air flows with phase change. The variable density and compressible effects are fully resolved, effectively lifting the Boussinesq approximation commonly used, e.g. for meteorological flows. Previous studies indicate that the Boussinesq assumption can lead to errors up to 25%, but the model remains common, for compressible models often suffer from a lack of stability. In order to overcome this issue, a new pressure-based solver is proposed, exhibiting excellent stability properties. Mass and momentum conservation equations are solved by a hybrid recursive regularized Lattice-Boltzmann approach, whereas the enthalpy and species conservation equations are solved using a finite volume method. The solver is based on a pressure-based method coupled with a predictor-corrector algorithm, and incorporates a humid equation of state, as well as a specific boundary condition treatment for phase change. In particular, boundary conditions that handle mass leakage are also proposed and validated. Three test cases are investigated in order to validate this new approach: the Rayleigh-Bénard instability applied to humid air, the atmospheric rising of a condensing moist bubble, and finally the evaporation of a thin liquid film in a vertical channel. Results indicate that the proposed pressure-based Lattice-Boltzmann model is stable and accurate on all cases.

Owing to the lack of consensus about the way Chapman-Enskog should be performed, a new Taylor-Expansion of Lattice-Boltzmann models is proposed. Contrarily to the Chapman-Enskog expansion, recalled in this manuscript, the method only assumes an su ciently small time step. Based on the Taylor expansion, the collision kernel is reinterpreted as a closure for the stress-tensor equation. Numerical coupling of Lattice-Boltzmann models with other numerical schemes, also encompassed by the method, are shown to create error terms whose scalings are more complex than those obtained via Chapman-Enskog. An athermal model and two compressible models are carefully analyzed through this new scope, casting a new light on each model's consistency with the Navier-Stokes equations.

A unified expression for high-speed compressible segregated consistent lattice Boltzmann methods, namely, pressure-based and improved density-based methods, is given. It is theoretically proved that in the absence of forcing terms, these approaches are strictly identical and can be recast in a unique form. An important result is that the difference with classical density-based methods lies in the addition of fourth-order term in the equilibrium function. It is also shown that forcing terms used to balance numerical errors in both original pressure-based and improved density-based methods can be written in a generalized way. A hybrid segregated efficient lattice-Boltzmann for compressible flow based on this unified model, equipped with a recursive regularization kernel, is proposed and successfully assessed on a wide set of test cases with and without shock waves.

A new pressure-based Lattice-Boltzmann method (HRR-p) is proposed for the simulation of flows for Mach numbers ranging from 0 to 1.5. Compatible with nearest neighbor lattices (e.g. D3Q19), the model consists of a predictor step comparable to classical athermal Lattice-Boltzmann methods, appended with a fully local and explicit correction step for the pressure. Energy conservation-for which the Hermi-tian quadrature is not accurate enough on such lattice-is solved via a classical finite volume MUSCL-Hancock scheme based on the entropy equation. The Euler part of the model is then validated for the transport of three canonical modes (vortex, en-tropy, and acoustic propagation), while its diffusive/viscous properties are assessed via thermal Couette flow simulations. All results match the analytical solutions, with very limited dissipation. Lastly, the robustness of the method is tested in a one dimensional shock tube and a two-dimensional shock-vortex interaction.

A Lattice-Boltzmann model for low-Mach reactive flows is presented, built upon our recently published model (Comb & Flame, 196, 2018). The approach is hybrid and couples a Lattice-Boltzmann solver for the resolution of mass and momentum conservation and a finite difference solver for the energy and species conservation. Having lifted the constant thermodynamic and transport properties assumptions, the model presented now fully accounts for the classical reactive flow thermodynamic closure: each component is assigned NASA coefficients for calculating its thermodynamic properties. A temperature-dependent viscosity is considered, from which are deduced thermo-diffusive properties via specification of Prandtl and component-specific Schmidt numbers. Another major improvement from our previous contribution is the derivation of an advanced collision kernel compatible of multi-component reactive flows stable in high shear flows. Validation is carried out first on premixed configurations, through simulation of the planar freely propagating flame, the growth of the associated Darrieus-Landau instability and three regimes of flame-vortex interaction. A double shear layer test case including a flow-stabilized diffusion flame is then presented and results are compared with DNS simulations, showing excellent agreement.

This study analyses the mixing and thermal fluctuations induced in a mixing tee junction with circular cross-sections when cold water flowing in a pipe is joined by hot water from a branch pipe. This config- uration is representative of industrial piping systems in which temperature fluctuations in the fluid may cause thermal fatigue damage on the walls. Implicit large-eddy simulations (LES) are performed for equal inflow rates corresponding to a bulk Reynolds number Re= 39,080. Two different thermal boundary conditions are studied for the pipe walls; an insulating adiabatic boundary and a conducting steel wall boundary. The predicted flow structures show a satisfactory agreement with the literature. The velocity and thermal fields (including high-order statistics) are not affected by the heat transfer with the steel walls. However, predicted thermal fluctuations at the boundary are not the same between the flow and the solid, showing that solid thermal fluctuations cannot be predicted by the knowledge of the fluid thermal fluctuations alone. The analysis of high-order turbulent statistics provides a better understand- ing of the turbulence features. In particular, the budgets of the turbulent kinetic energy and temperature variance allows a comparative analysis of dissipation, production and transport terms. It is found that the turbulent transport term is an important term that acts to balance the production. We therefore use a priori tests to evaluate three different models for the triple correlation
