    Course Overview

    Large-Eddy Simulation of Turbulent Combustion: Theory, Modeling and Practice


    The purpose of the course is to introduce the large-eddy simulation (LES) approach to modeling complex reacting flows through three different elements: 1) Theory, 2) Modeling and 3) Practical implementation or practice. The first part will focus on the concept of filtering and associated mathematical and physical considerations. The second part will address the issue of sub-filter modeling for a variety of combustion processes, and introduce the concept of dynamic modeling procedure for LES. The third part will consider practical issues in the implementation of LES models, including the effect of numerics on simulations and methodologies for mitigating these interactions.

    Key Topics

    • Understand the main theoretical formulation of large-eddy simulation
    • Understand the modeling requirements, common modeling approaches, and current state-of-the-art in combustion modeling
    • Understand the practical implementation considerations

    Who Should Attend

    The course is targeted towards everyone interested in advanced computational modeling of reacting flows. This includes industry researchers and CFD practitioners, AFRL and other national lab researchers, academic researchers including faculty, postdocs and students.
