Braack, M. (author), Richter, T. (author)We describe recent developments in the design and implementation of finite element methods for the compressible NavierStokes equations modeling chemically reactive flows. The emphasize is on the lowMach number regime including the limit case of incompressible flow. The most important ingredients are appropriate finite element discretizations,...conference paper 2006

Perminov, V. (author)The most dangerous form of the forest fire is crown fire which causes the largest damage. Considering that, natural investigations of these problems are merely impossible, methods of mathematical modeling are urgent. Mathematical model of forest fire was based on an analysis of known experimental data and using concept and methods from reactive...conference paper 2006

Bohbot, J. (author), Gillet, N. (author)This paper highlights the impact of different mesh remapping techniques on staggered grids in the context of combustion simulations in particular for direct injection Diesel engines. A remapping method based on a least squares method is used on the staggered grid to interpolate nonconservative variables like pressure and temperature. Then the...conference paper 2006

Bauer, J. (author), Bykov, V. (author), Maas, U. (author)The usage of detailed chemical kinetics for the mathematical modeling of combustion processes is desirable, but leads to a high computational effort. In the present work one of the methods of simplification of chemical kinetics  Intrinsic lowdimensional manifolds (ILDMs) is considered. Whereas in most CFD applications ILDMs are calculated in...conference paper 2006

Aglave, R.H. (author), Warnatz, J. (author)Detailed mechanisms describing ignition, flame propagation and pollutant formation typically involve several hundred species and elementary reactions, prohibiting their use in practical threedimensional engine simulations. Conventionally reduced mechanisms often fail to predict minor radicals and pollutant precursors. The ILDMmethod is an...conference paper 2006

Soulard, O. (author), Sabel'nikov, V. (author)In the field of turbulent combustion, Lagrangian Monte Carlo (LMC) methods (Pope, 85) have become an essential component of the probability density function (PDF) approach. LMC methods are based on stochastic particles, which evolve from prescribed stochastic ordinary differential equations (SODEs). They are used to compute the onepoint...conference paper 2006

Lindblad, E. (author), Valiev, D.M. (author), Müller, B. (author), Rantakokko, J. (author), Lötstedt, P. (author), Liberman, M.A. (author)New high order implicitexplicit RungeKutta methods have been developed and implemented into a finite volume code to solve the NavierStokes equations for reacting gas mixtures. The resulting nonlinear systems in each stage are solved by Newtons method. If only the chemistry is treated implicitly, the linear systems in each Newton iteration are...conference paper 2006

Paul, S.C. (author), Paul, M.C. (author), Jones, W.P. (author)In this work we investigate turbulent nonpremixed combustion, including species concentrations and temperature, in a model of 3D cylindrical combustor. Gaseous propane (C3H8) and preheated air with temperature of 773K are injected through the combustor inlet. A Large Eddy Simulation (LES) technique is applied to solve the governing equations of...conference paper 2006

Cuenot, B. (author), Boileau, M. (author), Pascaud, S. (author), Mossa, J.B. (author), Riber, E. (author), Poinsot, T. (author), Bérat, C. (author)Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is now recognized as an efficient numerical tool to predict gaseous combustion in industrial burners, and a number of examples of applications can be found in the literature. In these examples, the accuracy and the predictive capacity of LES are clearly demonstrated, even for unsteady phenomena. However most...conference paper 2006

Geurts, B.J. (author)We analyze the evolution of a diffusion flame in a turbulent mixing layer using largeeddy simulation. The largeeddy simulation includes Leray regularization of the convective transport and approximate inverse filtering to represent the chemical source terms. The Leray model is compared to the more conventional dynamic mixed model. The location...conference paper 2006

Borrel, M. (author), Ryan, J. (author), Billet, G. (author)A patch adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) platform is presented. Presently two NavierStokes solvers are available within this platform : a MUSCL and DG solver (FLUX AMR) and a multispecies MUSCL solver (MAJIC) for reacting flows. The first solver is based on cell centered approaches of finite volume type, the second solver is based on a cell...conference paper 2006
