Direct numerical simulation (DNS) was used to analyse local extinction and reignition in a lifted turbulent flame. The edge flame propagation velocity appears to be dependent on the scalar dissipation rate consistent with previous experimental and numerical studies. This dependency is analysed with a model proposed for laminar triple flames, showing a good agreement for moderate scalar dissipation rates and an under- and over-predictions of the DNS results in very low and high scalar dissipation rates, respectively. These discrepancies are then explained based on the model’s assumptions. The extinction and reignition are also analysed separately where the distinction is made based on the ave..
