Résumé : The flame front filtering is a well-known strategy in turbulent premixed combustion. An extension of this approach for the non-premixed combustion context has been proposed by means of directly filtering counterflow diffusion flamelets. Promising results were obtained for the non-premixed filtered tabulated chemistry formalism on 1-D and 2-D unresolved counterflow flame configurations. The present paper demonstrates the soundness of this approach on a 3-D real laminar non-premixed coflow flame. The model results are compared against the direct filtering of the fully resolved laminar diffusion flame showing that the formalism adequately describes the underlying physics. The study reveals the importance of the one-dimensional counterflow flamelet hypothesis, so that the model activation under this condition is ensured by means of a flame sensor. The consistent coupling between the model and the flame sensor adequately retrieves the flame lift-off and satisfactorily predicts the profile extension due to the filtering process.
