Simulation and modeling of soot formation and transport in turbulent flames

This project involves fundamental investigation of soot formation and transport in turbulent flames using advanced simulation techniques, including ODT, LES, and DNS. Soot emission from combustion devices is a pollutant, a health hazard, and affects global warming. Soot is responsible for the bulk of flame radiation. Understanding its behavior in flames, and being able to accurately model this behavior is important for quantitative engineering design and fire hazard analysis.

Funding is provided by the National Science Foundation under grant number CBET-1403403.
