New startup allocation on XSEDE

Dated: Jul 17, 2017

The computational combustion lab has been awarded a startup allocation on the Comet HPC system from XSEDE. This allocation will be used for high-fidelity combustion simulations.


Accpeted paper in International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer

Dated: Jul 13, 2017

A paper by Dr. Roy on development and application on multiphase radiation solver has been accepted in International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer.
This work explores possible effects of multiphase radiation in Diesel egnine-like conditions. It also presents a parametric study of spectral properties and optical models for Diesel spray.

Development of a multiphase photon Monte Carlo method for spray combustion and its application in high-pressure conditions, S. P. Roy, J. Cai, M. F. Modest. International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer. 115PA (2017) 453 - 466.


Welcome to Mr. Joseph Farmer, Undergraduate Research Fellow

Dated: May 1, 2017

Mr. Joseph Farmer will be joining the lab as an Undergraduate Research Fellow for Summer 2017. He will be working on benchmarking of a radiation solver using the inhouse HPC cluster.
