Abstract

A non-premixed impinging jet flame is studied using three-dimensional direct numerical simulation with detailed chemical kinetics in order to investigate the influence of fuel variability on flame surface density, flame normal, and flame index for syngas combustion. Analyses indicate that the fuel composition greatly influences the hydrogen (H2)/carbon monoxide (CO)syngas combustion, not only on the local stoichiometric iso-mixture fraction surface distribution but also on the vortical structures in the flow field. As a result of CO addition to hydrogen-enriched combustion, changes of the reaction zone in the flammable layer, shift of peak flame surface density distribution, shift of nonpremixed regions and formation of widely populated scalar dissipation rate with respect to tangential strain rate are all found to appear.
