Large eddy simulation of fire-induced flows using Lattice-Boltzmann methods

Large-eddy simulations (LES) of the near-field region of large-scale fire plumes are performed for the first time with a pressure-based Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) with low-Mach number approximation. Two scenarios are considered: the large-scale non-reactive helium plume and the 1 m methane pool fire, both investigated experimentally at Sandia. In the second scenario, a simplified modeling of the combustion and radiation processes is introduced involving a one-step irreversible reaction eddydissipation concept-based combustion model and a radiant fraction model, respectively. In both scenarios, a quantitative agreement is observed with the experimental data and model predictions are consistent with previouslypublished numerical studies. Our simulations demonstrate the computational efficiency of the proposed LBM solver to tackle fire-induced flows, suggesting that LBMs are a good alternative candidate for the modeling of fire-related problems.
