Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS)s of a low Karlovitz number turbulent premixed round jet flame are performed to determine the impact of the turbulence inflow conditions on the flame characteristics. This is accomplished by providing the first flame with a fully developed turbulent inflow via simulation of the upstream pipe and the coflow region, while the inflow boundary condition in the second flame is generated with a digital filter-based method without including the upstream region. The two databases are then thoroughly compared to reveal any differences resulting from the different inflow boundary conditions. The turbulence kinetic energy is observed to drop shortly downstream of the s..
