In this paper we propose a technique for a priori turbulent flame speed tabulation (TFST) for a given parameter space in standard combustion- regime diagrams. It can be used as a subgrid-scale (SGS) model in Large Eddy Simulation (LES). In a first step, stationary laminar flamelets are computed and stored over the progress variable following the ideas of flamelet generated manifolds (FGM). In a second step, the incompressible one-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations supplemented by the equation for the progress variable are solved on a grid that resolves all turbulent scales. Additionally, turbulent transport is implemented via the linear eddy model (LEM). The turbulent flame structures are solved until a statistically stationary mean value of the turbulent flame speed has been reached. The results are stored in a table that could be used by large scale premixed combustion models, e.g. front tracking schemes. Results are compared to an algebraic model and to direct numerical simulations (DNS).
