Abstract : In turbulent premixed combustion, the instantaneous flame thickness is typically thinner that the grid size usually retained in Large Eddy Simulations LES, requiring adapted models. Two alternatives to couple chemical databases with LES balance equations, the Thickened Flame TFLES and the Filtered Tabulated Chemistry F-TACLES models, are investigated here and compared in terms of chemical flame structure and dynamics. To avoid the uncertainties related to the modeling of sub-grid scale turbulence - flame interactions, this comparison is conducted in situations where the flame front is not wrinkled at sub-grid scale levels. The thinner quantity requiring an accurate discretization on the numerical grid mesh is the reaction rate of the thickened or filtered progress variable. The thermal flame structure is found to be considerably thicker in TFLES than when using F-TACLES. The simulation of a 2D unsteady Bunsen burner flame shows that the thermal thickness spreading strongly aects the flame dynamics giving a decisive advantage to F-TACLES compared to TFLES.
