Abstract: In this study, three combustion models, the volumetric heat source (VHS) model, the eddy break-up model and the presumed probability density function (prePDF) model, are examined in enclosure fire simulation. The combustion models are compared and evaluated for their performance in predicting three typical enclosure fires, a room fire, a shopping mall fire and a tunnel fire. High Reynolds number turbulence k-ε model with buoyancy modification and the discrete transfer radiation model (DTRM) are used in the simulation. Corresponding experimental data from the literature are adopted for validation. The results show satisfactory prediction in flow patterns and features in the complex enclosure fires. However, it is shown that these combustion models are not able to show consistent performance over the different locations and enclosure fires. The needs for adequate turbulent combustion models in enclosure fires are discussed.
