Abstract : During the course of this work, we focused on the extension of the vortex method and the transport element method to three-dimensional flows and to reacting flow with finite heat release, density variation and volumetric expansion. Problems explored in detail include the formation of streamwise vorticity in uniform-density and variable density flow, the effect of this vorticity on the rate of product formation and the effect of volumetric expansion due to heat release on shear layer growth rate....
