Outwardly-propagating spherical turbulent premixed flames are studied using Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes methodology. The reaction rate closure is based on recently developed strained flamelets, where the flamelets are parametrised using the scalar dissipation rate. It is shown that the leading edge speed for the spherical flame is higher than for the planar case, for a given turbulence and thermo-chemical conditions. In addition, it is shown that including the mean curvature effects in the reaction rate closure do not influence the spherical flame speeds when compared with a model that excludes these effects.
