Abstract:

This research focuses on fundamental investigations of mixing, chemical-reaction, and combustion, in turbulent, subsonic, and supersonic flows. It is comprised of an experimental effort an analytical, modeling, and computational effort and a diagnostics- and instrumentation-development effort. Computational studies are focusing on fundamental issues pertaining to hydrocarbon ignition and combustion as well as investigations of the Rayleigh-Taylor instability.
