In the present paper, the flames from DJHC burner, imitating MILD (Moderate and Intense Low Oxygen Dilution) combustion, are simulated using PDF transport modeling. Two different solution approaches have been used to resolve the joint composition PDF. First, a Lagrangian approach is used to solve the joint composition PDF, while in the second approach, the approximate solution is achieved by using presumed shape PDF and DQMOM-IEM modeling known as Multi-Environment Eulerian PDF (MEPDF). A quantitative comparison of the predictions from these two solution methods has been performed for two different jet Reynolds number, i.e. Re = 4100 & 8800. Moreover, the effect of molecular diffusion is also explored by comparing the predictions using different micro-mixing models such as Coalescence Dispersion (CD), Euclidean Minimum Spanning Tree (EMST), and Interaction-by-Exchange-with-Mean (IEM) model. The obtained numerical predictions from both approaches are compared with the experimental data to highlight the accuracy as well as the predictive capability of these models. In the case of low Reynolds number (Re = 4100), it is observed that the mean axial velocity and turbulent kinetic energy profiles are in good agreement with the measurements while the temperature profiles are slightly over-predicted in the downstream region. Although MEPDF results are in good agreement with the LPDF results, both the model predictions tend to exhibit discrepancies at higher Reynolds number.
