Within a Reynolds Averaged Numerical Simulation (RANS) approach for turbulence modelling, a computational investigation of a turbulent lifted H2/N2 flame is presented. Various turbulent combustion models are considered including the Eddy Dissipation Model (EDM), the Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC), and the composition Probability Density Function transport model (PDF) in combination with different detailed and global reaction mechanisms. Turbulence is modelled using the Standard k-ɛ model, which has proven to offer a good accuracy, based on a preceding validation study for an isothermal H2/N2 jet. Results are compared with the published measurements for a lifted H2/N2 flame, and the relative performance ofthe turbulent combustion models are assessed. It is observed that the prediction quality can vary largely depending on the reaction mechanism and the turbulent combustion model. The best and quite satisfactory agreement with experiments is provided by two detailed reaction mechanisms applied with a PDF model.
