Abstract: This work presents large eddy simulation/probability density function (LES/PDF) simulation results for the Sandia/Sydney series of bluff-body stabilized CH4/H-2 flames. Results are presented for the flames HM1, HM2 and HM3, using the 19-species ARM2 reduced chemical mechanism, and comparison is made with previous numerical simulations of the same flames. When compared to previous numerical studies of these bluff-body flames, the present simulation shows considerable improvement, particularly in the downstream regions of the flow. The simulations are shown to be sensitive to the treatment of heat transfer to the bluff-body face, with better agreement in the temperature profiles achieved with the addition of a Dirichlet temperature boundary condition.
