Computation of three-dimensional three-phase flow of carbon dioxide using a high-order WENO scheme

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1482424

We have developed a high-order numerical method for the 3D simulation of viscous and inviscid multiphase flow described by a homogeneous equilibrium model and a general equation of state. Here we focus on single-phase, two-phase (gas-liquid or gas-solid) and three-phase (gas-liquid-solid) flow of CO...

Experimental Investigation of a Bluff Body Burner for Distributed Hydrogen Injection

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1491018

A novel concept for injection of gaseous hydrogen (fuel) into a stream of air (oxidant) with in low-NOx gas turbine combustion systems is proposed and tested experimentally in a laboratory bluff body (BB) burner. Instead of conventional injection nozzles, that represent undesired point sources of th...

Identifying turbulent structures through topological segmentation

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1354044

A new method of extracting vortical structures from a turbulent flow is proposed whereby topological segmentation of an indicator function scalar field is used to identify the regions of influence of the individual vortices. This addresses a long-standing challenge in vector field topological analys...

Modeling of mean flame shape during premixed flame flashback in turbulent boundary layers

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1145298

Direct numerical simulations of freely-propagating premixed flames in the turbulent boundary layer of fully-developed turbulent channel flows are used for a priori validation of a new model that aims to describe the mean shape of the turbulent flame brush during flashback. Comparison with the DNS da...

Effect of fuel composition and differential diffusion on flame stabilization in reacting syngas jets in turbulent cross-flow

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1257012

Three-dimensional direct numerical simulation results of a transverse syngas fuel jet in turbulent cross-flow of air are analyzed to study the influence of varying volume fractions of CO relative to H<inf>2</inf> in the fuel composition on the near field flame stabilization. The mean fla...

GHGT-12 Performance of the IGCC with distributed feeding of H2 in the gas turbine burner

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1190286

A main hurdle for realizing the IGCC with CO2 capture is the lack of gas turbines capable of burning hydrogen in an environmental-friendly, yet energy-efficient manner. With currently proposed combustion schemes an efficiency penalty is caused by the preparation (separation and compression) of the i...

Large Eddy Simulation of premixed flame flashback in a turbulent channel

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1142757

In the design of high-hydrogen content gas turbines for power generation, ashback of the turbulent ame by propagation through the low velocity boundary layers in the premix- ing region is an operationally dangerous event. Predictive models that could capture the onset of ashback would be indispensab...

Direct numerical simulation of laminar flame-wall interaction for a novel H2-selective membrane/injector configuration

https://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1133527

Direct numerical simulations are performed to investigate the transient processes of laminar flame-wall interaction and quenching near a porous, permeable wall and compared against a reference case of a non-porous impermeable wall. A boundary condition formulation that models species (hydrogen in th...
