Combustion Modeling

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Combustion Modeling

The Combustion Modeling Technical Challenge develops new computational models that more accurately predict detailed chemical reactions associated with jet fuel combustion. These new models will lead to the design of more fuel-efficient jet engines and allow the relative merits of different alternative fuels to be assessed. Near-term goals include the accurate prediction of lean flame blowout and soot emissions as a function of changes in fuel composition.
