Project Title: 
Modeling and Simulation of Reacting Flows

This research broadly involves first-principles based modeling and simulation of reacting flows, including combustion, turbulence, soot aerosols, and plasma physics, and their multiscale interactions. The goals are developing and utilizing high-fidelity and computationally efficient predictive tools to gain fundamental understanding of the physico-chemical processes in reacting flows, and to design and control advanced propulsion and power-generation systems (primarily gas turbines and reciprocating engines) for energy sustainability.

Current interests incluce:

  • Computational fluid dynamics of turbulent reacting flows: large eddy simulation and direct numerical simulation
  • Evolution of soot, aerosols, and dusty plasmas in (turbulent) reacting flows: engine emissions and advanced manufacturing
  • Plasma/ozone assisted ignition, combustion, and fuel reforming
  • Chemical kinetics, mechanism reduction, and dynamic adaptive chemistry
  • Supercritical mixing and combustion: rocket engines and high-pressure gas turbines
  • Numerical methods for partial differential equations and high-performance parallel computing
