A simple two-zone subgrid temperature distribution is developed to model turbulence-radiation interaction in the Fire Dynamics Simulator. The new approach enforces consistency between the subgrid flame distribution and the heat release rate from the eddy dissipation model. To investigate the performance of the new model, we simulate the University of Maryland turbulent line burner and compare global radiative fraction as a function of coflow oxygen dilution. The results suggest that the model can improve grid resolution dependence in prediction of radiative emissions. Sensitivity of the model predictions to the assumed fuel carbon to CO fraction (a parameter of the two-step fast chemistry scheme) was found to be significant, which is not surprising since this parameter essentially controls the in-flame soot concentration and generally has a first-order effect on resolved emission. Four different model variations were tested, corresponding to varying degrees of complexity in modeling the subgrid correlations for the absorption coefficient. Differences in results between model implementations were on par with the variation in results obtained with different path lengths applied to the gray gas model for the absorption coefficient.
