A 3D CFD simulation of turbulent reactive flows is discussed. The original compressible version of the solver HybFlow designed for turbine rows investigation is here applied for low speed burning flow. A conserved scalar approach is considered to simulate the turbulent reacting flow field of non-premixed flames. The spatial discretization is based on an upwind finite volume method for unstructured grids using the Roe’s Riemann solver with a non-linear TVD scheme. The steady state solution is computed by means of an implicit relaxed Newton method. The linear solver is GMRES coupled with an ILU(0) preconditioning scheme. The turbulence chemistry interaction is described using a presumed β-PDF Flamelet approach. Two test applications are here presented to verify the methodology characteristics for a pilot-jet turbulent flame and a bluff-body stabilized flame both using CH4. A model combustor supplied with propane is also briefly shown as an example of application to a more realistic configuration.
