For the first time the probability of ignition is calculated successfully using a PDF transport model. At present the model is only accurate where jet intermittency effects are small, away from the jet boundary. A conclusion of this investigation is the probability of ignition field is sensitive to the micro-mixing model used. In this article, four micro-mixing models are implemented and the modified Curl model demonstrated to be the most accurate for the jet ignitability experiments simulated.
