A novel, stochastic, hybrid binomial Langevin-multiple mapping conditioning (MMC) model—that utilizes the strengths of each component—has been developed for inhomogeneous flows. The implementation has the advantage of naturally incorporating velocity-scalar interactions through the binomial Langevin model and using this joint probability density function (PDF) to define a reference variable for the MMC part of the model. The approach has the advantage that the difficulties encountered with the binomial Langevin model in modeling scalars with nonelementary bounds are removed. The formulation of the closure leads to locality in scalar space and permits the use of simple approaches (e.g., the modified Curl’s model) for transport in the reference space. The overall closure was evaluated through application to a chemically reacting mixing layer. The results show encouraging comparisons with experimental data for the first two moments of the PDF and plausible results for higher moments at a relatively modest computational cost.
