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

28 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and Russian and held by 599 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

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

Another strategy for fast "Poisson" solving with non-constant coefficients by Jay P Boris( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 3 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)

Impurity Transport in Cylindrical Plasmas by H. W Bloomberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 1-D plasma transport code for cylindrical geometries is presented. The code is particularly well suited for configurations where magnetic flux surfaces are in rapid motion as in conducting liner experiments. A multi-species flux plasma model is derived, and, in particular, the cross magnetic field drifts of high Z impurity ions are considered. The code is based on a finite difference scheme involving numerical Lagrangian cells that move with the E X B drift velocity. The motion of the cells is determined by the pressure balance requirement. In each time step dissipative effects are considered separately, so that the pressure adjustment can be treated as an ideal adiabatic process. Test run results of the ideal adiabatic compression of a plasma by an infinitely conducting liner are given to show the effectiveness of the pressure adjustment algorithm. The effects of classical transport have been included in a test run of the evolution of a Tokamak type plasma with PLT parameters. A modest penetration of iron ions toward the center of the plasma column is found. An algorithm for neutral particle streaming into the plasma from the wall is described. (Author)
Flux-Corrected Transport Modules for Solving Generalized Continuity Equations by Jay P Boris( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 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)
The Rayleigh-Taylor and Kelvin-Helmholtz Instabilites in Targets Accelerated by Laser Ablation by M. H Emery( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the FAST2D laser-shell simulation model we have accelerated a 20 micrometer thick plastic foil up to 160 km/s. The foil maintained its integrity up to 10 ns giving an aspect ratio of 40. We are able to follow the Rayleigh-Taylor bubble-and-spike development far into the nonlinear regime and beyond the point of foil fragmentation. Strong shear flow develops at the interface between the bubble-and-spike which leads to the development of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. The K-H instability causes the tips of the spikes to widen and as a result reduce their rate of 'fall.' (Author)

Lagrangian Fluid Dynamics for Combustion Modelling by M. J Fritts( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent flow visualization experiments have shown the need to follow the behavior of dynamically interacting coherent structures in both cold flows and flames. Since these structures move the fluid, a Lagrangian approach is especially useful in theoretical calculations because we can observe the interaction of a particular fluid element with its changing environments as the flow evolves. One-dimensional Lagrangian flame models are successful because they also minimize the effects of numerical diffusion which is the bane of laminar flame calculations. However, most two- and three-dimensional flame models are Eulerian because of problems in standard Lagrangian formulations for multi-dimensional models and because phenomenological turbulent diffusion terms are usually added which mask the numerical diffusion. The purpose of this paper is to describe one- and multi-dimensional Lagrangian algorithms which eliminate many of the problems previously associated with this approach. An example of a one-dimensional flame calculation which incorporates the new ideas will be given. Finally, examples will be given of the two-dimensional Lagrangian triangular gridding technique and it will be indicated how this may be applied to multi-phase combustion problem. (Author)
