Numerical simulation of reactive flow by Elaine S Oran( Book )

27 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and Russian and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes account of the explosive growth in computer technology and the greatly increased capacity for solving complex reactive-flow problems that have occurred since the first edition of Numerical Simulation of Reactive Flow was published in 1987. It presents algorithms useful for reactive-flow simulations, describes trade-offs involved in their use, and gives guidance for building and using models of complex reactive flows. The text covers both new topics and significant changes in the treatment of radiation transport, coupling, grids and numerical representations, and turbulence. Chapters are arranged in three broad sections: an introductory short course on modeling and numerical simulation; advanced topics in numerical simulation of reactive-flow processes; and, finally, simulations of complex reactive flows." "This new edition is an indispensable guide to how to construct, use, and interpret numerical simulations of reactive flows. It will be welcomed by advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a wide range of researchers and practitioners in engineering, physics, and chemistry."--Jacket

Finite-difference techniques for vectorized fluid dynamics calculations by D. L Book( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes several finite-difference techniques developed recently for the numerical solution of fluid equations. Both convective (hyperbolic) equations and elliptic equations (of Poisson's type) are discussed. The em phasis is on methods developed and in use at the Naval Research Laboratory, although brief descriptions of competitive and kindred techniques are included as background material. This book is intended for specialists in computational fluid dynamics and related subjects. It includes examples, applications and source listings of program modules in Fortran embodying the methods.

Detailed modelling of combustion systems by Elaine S Oran( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to acquaint the reader with some of the basic principles of detailed modelling as applied to combustion systems. Detailed modelling is also known as numerical simulation. It can be used to describe the chemical and physical evolution of a complex reactive flow system by solving numerically the governing time-dependent conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy. Solving these equations requires input data such as the species present, the chemical reactions that can occur, transport coefficients for viscosity, thermal conductivity, molecular diffusion, and thermal diffusion, the equation of state for the various materials present, and a set of boundary, source and initial conditions. Given this information, the equations contain in principle all the information we might want from the largest macroscopic space scales down to the point where the fluid approximation itself breaks down. Flame, detonation, turbulence phenomena, and all multidimensional effects are included in the solutions of these equations. An important goal of detailed modelling is to develop a computational model with a well-understood range of validity. This model can then be used in a predictive role to evaluate the feasibility and validity of new concepts. It can also be used to interpret experimental measurements, to extend our knowledge to new parameter regimes, and perhaps as an engineering design tool. Throughout these various applications, the model may serve as an excellent way to test our understanding of the interactions of the individual physical processes which control the behavior of a reactive flow system
Flux-Corrected Transport Modules for Solving Generalized Continuity Equations by Jay P Boris( Book )

3 editions published between 1976 and 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two Fortran subroutines for solving generalized continuity equations using optimized Flux-Corrected Transport techniques are documented. The basic finite-difference algorithm has fourth-order accurate phases and minimum residual diffusion. Phoenical antidiffusion has been generalized to moving grids and the entire algorithm has been vectorized for efficient pipeline computation. Nonlinear coupled systems of equations and multidimensional systems can be solved by repeated application of these routines. Eulerian, sliding rezone, and Lagrangian grids are allowed, and the calculations performed in Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinate systems. (Author)
Another strategy for fast "Poisson" solving with non-constant coefficients by Jay P Boris( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The key to fast Poisson solving in an extended domain is nonlocal residual error dispersal. The fastest, most stable iterations are obtained when 'most' of the nonconstant-coefficient elliptic operator can be inverted implicitly . Although local inversion approaches (ICCG, SOR, etc.) are workable, there are good incentives to seek computationally inexpensive nonlocal techniques whose worst case convergence is expected to be far better than for local inverse techniques. This note presents one such approach for a useful class of variable coefficient problems. (Author)

A Fluid Transport Algorithm that Works by Jay P Boris( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper describes a class of explicit, Eulerian finite-difference algorithms for solving the continuity equation which are built around a technique called flux correction. These Flux-Corrected Transport Algorithms are of indeterminate order but yield realistic, accurate results. In addition to the mass-conserving property of most conventional algorithms, the FCT algorithms strictly maintain the positivity of actual mass densities so steep gradients and inviscid shocks are handled particularly well. This paper concentrates on a one-dimensional version called SHASTA. (Author)

Theoretical and Computational Approach to Modeling Flame Ignition( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this paper, time-dependent results obtained from a simplified but nonlinear analytic similarity solution and a detailed numerical simulation are used to study the relations between the fundamental processes occurring in the very early stages of flame ignition in homogeneous premixed gases. The parameters which may be varied are the composition of the mixture, the initial radius of energy deposition R sub 0, the duration of the heating TAN SUB 0, and the total energy deposited in the system E sub 0. The similarity solution plus the ignition delay times Tau sub c for the fuel-oxidizer mixture as a function of temperature can be used to calculate whether or not a given energy source is adequate to ignite the system. This simple procedure may then be calibrated using the time-dependent NRL detailed reactive flow models. The models include the thermophysical properties of the mixture, a full chemical kinetics scheme, the nonlinear convection of self-consistent fluid dynamics and the matrix molecular diffusion coefficients for the individual species. Results are presented for a selected mixture of H2-O2-N2 for two values of R sub 0 which show that a model must be constructed for a quench volume in order to complete the similarity solution calibration.

Determination of Subdominant Solutions Using a Partial Wronskian by Jay P Boris( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Non-Physical Self Forces in Electromagnetic Plasma-Simulation Algorithms( )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper describes a simple algorithm for removing nonphysical self forces from two popular electromagnetic plasma simulation models. This algorithm also has two additional features; it considerably reduces short-wavelength noise and unwanted numerical fluctuations, and permits faster integration of the particle orbit equations by roughly a factor of two
The Stability and Multiplicity of the Monotonic Lagrangian Grid( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Monotonic Lagrangian Grid (MLG) is a data structure in which nodes are ordered in a monotonic way such that those nodes which are close in physical space also have nearby indices in the data structure arrays. An MLG ordering for a given system of nodes, as defined by the monotonicity constraints, is not unique. For all but the smallest systems, the number of allowed orderings is extremely large with many of the possible MLG's so badly structured that they lead to poor results when used in physical calculations. A well-structured MLG ordering is one that corresponds well to the physical ordering of the system. This paper shows that the majority of the MLG's for a given set of node locations are poorly structured, but that the small fraction which are well-structured tend to be extremely stable against perturbations of the node positions. It is this extreme stability of the well-structured MLG's that is responsible for both the utility of this approach in particle-based simulations and the success of stochastic grid regularization, a technique for restructuring from a poorly structured to a well-structured MLG. The high probability of encountering a well-structured MLG when the node dynamics is complex, even without stochastic grid regularization, is a result of this relative stability
