Large Eddy Simulation of Turbulence-Chemistry Interactions in Reacting Flows: Experiences on the ORNL NCCS Cray-XT Platforms (Jaguar)

J. C. OEFELEIN, R. SANKARAN

Abstract


This paper provides a perspective on high-performance computing as an enabler for high-fidelity simulations of turbulent combustion processes typically encountered in a variety of propulsion and power systems. We focus on recent experiences on the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) Cray-XT Platforms (i.e., Jaguar) using a unique massively-parallel flow-solver designed for application of the Large Eddy Simulation technique called RAPTOR.
