Comparisons between numerical predictions and experimental data for a methane fire have been performed. Vertical velocity and turbulent kinetic energy measurements along the centerline of the fire were used to validate the models in the SIERRA/Fuego fire code. Two different turbulence treatments, a steady RANS solution with a model for buoyancy generated turbulence, and an unsteady solution with closure models based on a temporal filter width were used. Solution sensitivity to grid size has been examined for both approaches. The results indicate strong sensitivities to the turbulence model.
