In the present study a patched grid method if employed to compute the reacting flows of a wedge in a duct and a two-ring flome stabilizer. A previously developed calculation procedure is used, together with the eddy-breakup combustion model. The computed results of the wedge flow compare favorably with the available experimental data. For the two-ring flame stabilizer flaws, as in the nonreacting cases, staggering the distance between the two rings can change the flow pattern. It is demonstrated that the zonal grid method is a useful approach in simulating both the reacting and nonreacting flame stabilizer flows in a complex geometry.
