Abstract: The feasibility of coupling a stochastic soot algorithm to a deterministic gas-phase chemistry solver is investigated for homogeneous combusting systems. A second-order splitting technique was used to decouple the particle population and gas phase in order to solve. A numerical convergence study is presented that demonstrates convergence with splitting step size and particle count for a batch reactor and a perfectly stirred reactor. Simulation results are presented alongside experimental data for a plug flow …
