Fundamental Research on Turbulent Gaseous and Spray Combustion

A major thrust in our research group is to enhance the understanding of turbulent reacting multiphase flows. We use DNS and LES to study such flows.

Instantaneous flame front (T = 1300 K) (left) and vorticity field (right) for a v-gutter stabilized propane/air premixed flame for an acoustically reflecting inlet

Instantaneous fuel concentration contours and spray field for liquid kerosene injected in air crossflow with a v-gutter flame holder; slices are x = 0.2, 0.248, 0.275, 0.3, 0.35, 0.4, 0.45m from the inlet.
