Benchmarking of the new software

A well-known uniform-mesh code known as SENGA2 is going to be used to validate HAMISH. Initially simulations involving flame wall interaction (FWI) in head on quenching of statically planer flames, side-wall quenching in channel flows and oblique-quenching in rod stabilised V-flame configurations for premixed turbulent flames are going to be compared between the two codes. Later on simulations of localised forced ignition of turbulent stratified mixtures in canonical configurations and flame-droplet interaction are also going to be compared between the two codes.

To date simulations for head on quenching of a planar flame (see Figure 1 below) and oblique-quenching in rod stabilised V-flame have been completed using SENGA2 Further work on side-wall quenching in channel flows is underway using SENGA2. Once all the data from the aforementioned simulations have been extracted and analysed, these simulations are going to be performed by using HAMISH.
