Turbulent combustion modeling

In this research line, we work on the improvement and predictivity of numerical simulation tools for combustion systems at industrial scale. The Group develops new models, such as "flamelets", for turbulent flames. These models presume that laminar-flame-like structures underlie in turbulent flames and, as a result, a tabulation of laminar flames can be incorporated with relatively computational cost to the numerical simulations of the chemitry-turbulence interactions. The models developed in the Group can be used both in commercial codes and open-source codes, improving the productivity and viability.
