Abstract

A new Multi-Moment Sectional Method (MMSM) is developed to predict the evolution of the soot size distribution. Unlike conventional sectional methods, in MMSM, multiple moments are solved within each section, and the soot number density function within each section is reconstructed from a polynomial profile or, for the last section, an exponential profile. The MMSM approach is combined with a detailed univariate soot model and applied to the prediction of the soot size distribution in an ethylene laminar premixed flame. Compared to a pure sectional method, MMSM is shown to achieve a higher rate of convergence for the predicted total number density and particle size distribution.
