Abstract

Turbulent combustion is a key in most transportation systems and several major energy production processes. However, the depletion of fossil fuels and growing environmental concern a pushing toward new biofuels and most efficient combustion systems. To do so, a better understanding of the combustion process is needed, in particular its interaction with turbulence. We tackle this problem with detailed simulations, resolving the important scales of turbulence while modelling the important features of complex chemistry. The goal is to model judiciously a complex and chaotic process. Several avenues will be tested
