Two-dimensional direct numerical simulation of a reacting liquid-oxygen/methane mixing layer at supercritical conditions is performed, to investigate the performance of subfilter models for large eddy simulation. A priori analyses of the dynamic Smagorinsky and mixed models for computing the subfilter velocity-velocity and velocity-scalar covariances are carried out. The models are evaluated at different filter widths to assess their applicability at different grid resolutions. Subfilter scalar-scalar covariance terms and their relevance to modeling supercritical reacting flows are also emphasized.
