Abstract

The flamelet approach is considered a viable framework to the modeling of homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engines under stratified mixture conditions. However, there are several issues that need further improvement. In particular, accurate representation of the scalar dissipation rate, which is the key parameter to connect the physical mixing space to the reactive space, requires further investigation. This involves a number of aspects: (i) probability density functions, (ii) mean scalar dissipation rates, and (iii) conditional scalar dissipation rates, for mixture fraction (Z) and total enthalpy (H). The present study aims to assess the validity of existing models in HCCI environments both in the RANS and LES contexts, and thereby suggest alternative models to improve on the above three aspects.
