The timing and location of autoignition can be highly sensitive to turbulent ﬂuctuations of composition. Second-order Conditional Moment Closure (CMC) provides transport equations for conditional (co)variances in turbulent reacting ﬂows. CMC equations accounting for compressibility and diﬀerential diﬀusion are analyzed using data from direct numerical simulation of an autoignitive lifted turbulent hydrogen jet ﬂame . At the ﬂame base, second-order moments were required to accurately model the conditional reaction rates. However, over 80% of the second-order reaction rate component was obtainable with a small subset (16%) of the species-temperature covariances. The balance of the second-order CMC equation showed that turbulent transport across spatial composition gradients initiates generation of conditional variances.
