Research

The research within Reactive Flow Modeling Laboratory at KAUST is focused on addressing both fundamental and applied challenges in simulating complex reactive flow problems.

Our research efforts concentrate on both the development of accurate and computationally affordable algorithms, as well as on the application of existing algorithms to challenging reactive flow problems and configurations.

Past Research

The Reative Flow Modeling Laboratory at KAUST is involved in the development of computationally affordable methodologies to numerically predict ignition in an HCCI engine with a thermally and mixture stratified charge. Additionally, we perform research in the fundamentals of the ignition process in HCCI engines under stratification.​​​
The Reactive Flow Modeling Laboratory at KAUST is involved in large scale simulations of non-equilibrium turbulent non-premixed flames using hybrid LES / FDF approaches.​​​​​
