Multiscale modeling of soot

Home

The exact processes of soot formation and growth are still yet to be understood. To understand the physics and chemistry of soot one would need to follow soot from its inception from gaseous species to its evolution due to complex interaction with gas and organic & inorganic aerosols in the atmosphere.

Efficient and scalable solvers for HPC in combustion

Combustion involves physics of turbulence, chemistry, radiation, spray and particulates. Each of these phenomena are computationally expensive. Therefore the need for efficient and scalable modeling tools is paramount in combustion science.

Multiphysics interactions in combustion devices

Combustion involves complex interactions of fluid dynamics, multiphase flows, chemical reactions, and heat transfer. Our understanding of combustion is still incomplete because of the complexity of each of these processes and their interactions.

Atmospheric soot and air quality

In the context of global climate change, combustion-generated pollution, particularly soot or black carbon, is a major concern. Unfortunately our understanding of evolution of combustion-generated soot in the atmosphere is still lacking.
