résumé The paper deals with the numerical prediction of a high swirling non-premixed confined natural gas diffusion flame in order to predict the pollutant emissions NOx using the PDF model coupled with the Reynolds stress model (RSM). A chemical equilibrium model in conjunction with the assumed shape of the PDF is adopted. The chemical combustion reactions are described by 9 species and 8 reactions [31]. The PDF of the mixture fraction is described with a b -function. In order to predict the NOx emissions, a NOx post-processor of the Fluent code has been performed. The concentration of O and OH radicals are obtained assuming the partial-equilibrium assumption and using a PDF in terms of temperature. The numerical simulation of various factors influencing the combustion process are examined and compared favourably with experimental results.
