In the present work, two new OpenFOAM solvers for combustion problems requiring detailed kinetic mechanisms are presented. The Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) [1] is used for turbulence-chemistry interactions and for the integration of detailed chemistry. The solvers, called ′edcSimpleSMOKE′ for steady state problems and ′edcPimpleSMOKE′ for unsteady ones, were developed for a robust handling of large and detailed chemical mechanisms in the context of RANS simulations. The solver was validated using high-fidelity experimental data from several Sandia flames and Jet in Hot Co-flow burner. In general, good agreement is observed between the simulations and the experimental results, for both temperature and species mass fraction profiles. What's more, different formulations of EDC model are tested and the results are compared.
