Turbulent Combustion Modeling : Advances, New Trends and Perspectives


Turbulent combustion sits at the interface of two important non-linear, multiscale phenomena: chemistry and turbulence. Its study is also extremely timely in view of the need to develop new combustion technologies in order to fight climate change, energy source uncertainty, and air pollution. Modelling of turbulent combustion has received attention for a number of years, but key issues are still eluding, and a theoretical description that is accurate enough to make our models rigorous and quantitative for industrial use is still lacking.In this book, a group of prominent experts review most of the available approaches in modelling turbulent combustion, with particular focus on the exploding increase in computational resources that has allowed the simulation of increasingly detailed phenomena. The relevant algorithms are presented, the theoretical methods explained, and various application examples are given.The book is expected to be useful to graduate and advanced undergraduate students, to engine designers, and to anyone wishing to understand the state of the art and the future directions of this scientifically challenging and practically important field.
