The mathematical modelling of turbulent flames is a difficult task due to the intense coupling between turbulent transport processes and chemical kinetics. The model presented within this paper is focused on the turbulence-chemistry interaction. The topic of this study is the numerical simulation of turbulent non-premixed hydrogen flame with different turbulent mod-els in order to invest gate their predictive capability. The two turbulent models are compared: the (k-e) model with a limited Pope's correction and the Reynolds stress model (RSM). The predictions are validated against experimental data provided by Raman and laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) measurements for a turbulent jet hydrogen-air diffusion flame. The turbu-lence-chemistry interaction is handled with flame let approach. Simulations of test cases with simple geometries verify the developed model and compare favourably with results of earlier investigations that employed both (k-e) and RSM closures with the CMC and PDF approaches [5, 7].
