The expertise in this group includes fluid mechanics, modeling and simulation, computational fluid dynamics, numerical simulation, numerical modeling, numerical analysis and CFD simulation.
Current research includes the performance of flamelet generated manifolds (FGM) in premixed turbulent cases, measuring burning velocities with the heat flux method and FGM and pre-assumed PDF's In LES of combustion. Upcoming projects will look at complicated diffusion and combustion design.
