Partially Stratified Charge Natural Gas Combustion: A LES Numerical Analysis 2015-01-0398

The aim of this work is to assess the accuracy of results obtained from Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of a partially-premixed natural gas spark-ignition combustion process in a Constant Volume Combustion Chamber (CVCC). To this aim, the results are compared with the experimental data gathered at the University of British Columbia. The computed results show good agreement with both flame front visualization and pressure rise curves, allowing for drawing important statements about the peculiarities of the Partially Stratified Combustion ignition concept and its benefits in ultra-lean combustion processes.
