RESUMO

Reacting and nonreacting flows in porous media have been studied in the present paper via two approaches, pore scale simulation and volume averaging model. The accurateness of the volume averaging model has been examined through pore scale simulation of turbulent flow in a simple but often used porous medium consisting of a staggered arrangement of square cylinders. The results show that, although the variations of temperature and turbulent characteristics are significant over a pore, the turbulent kinetic energy, flame speed, and temperature are fairly well predicted by the volume averaging model. However, the volume averaging model is unable to predict the flame curvature and the pore level local high temperature regions of the gas phase in the turbulent reacting flow in porous media which can be up to 18%. Other shortcomings of the volume averaging model are also disclosed through the sensitivity analysis of volume averaging solution to the volumetric heat transfer and extinction coefficients of porous media.
