Abstract:

The direct simulation Monte Carlo method as it is applied to complex reacting flows is discussed at length. Relations are presented for the efficient treatment of energy dependent cross sections, multiple species and chemical reactions in multi-dimensional flows. Special emphasis is placed on recent advancements in the method developed at Spectral Sciences, including the use of dynamically adjustable weighting factors and global time counters.
