Abstract: Coflow and counterflow methane-air flames are simulated over a complete partially premixed regime in order to characterize the effects of dominant combustion modes (i.e., single-, two-, and three-stage combustion) on NO x emissions. Simulations employ a comprehensive numerical model that uses detailed descriptions of transport and chemistry (GRI-2.11 mechanism) and includes radiation effects. It is demonstrated that a complete partially premixed regime, which extends from premixed flames to triple flames and …
