Abstract/Summary Multiple mapping conditioning (MMC) is used to model local extinction and reignition phenomena in homogeneous, isotropic decaying turbulence. It is recognized that mixture fraction alone is not sufficient to account for turbulent scalar fluctuations and that more than one reference variable needs to be introduced. We introduce a second reference variable with a dual character: the second variable is a dissipation-like variable that emulates the intermittent behaviour of scalar dissipation and it is therefore the cause for local extinction in our modelling. However, the second variable is also used to match the scalar variance of a reaction progress variable to ensure consistency in temperature flucutations of the MMC model and Direct Numerical Simulations. The resulting model provides a (fully) closed formulation for the modelling of local extinction and re-ignition events and predictions of the joint probability distribution of mixture fraction and sensible enthalpy, of reactive species and of the global conversion rates are good and clear improvments over conventional mixture fraction based methods that use mixture fraction as the only conditioning paramenter.
