High fidelity simulations on gas-turbine combustors

Prediction of combustion instability via flame transfer function modeling

Turbulent mixing on unsteady jets

Novel age-based modeling on turbulent combustion

Fuel spray dynamics

Code development for high performance computing

In partnership with Prof. Richard Sandberg at the University of Melbourne, our lab develops a DNS code to simulate turbulent combustion. The code is called HiPSTAR (The High-Performance Solver for Turbulence and Aeroacoustic Research), which is initially developed to simulate turbulent non-reacting flows.
