Abstract

In the previous chapter we introduced some of the properties of turbulent flow and briefly examined some of its characteristics. Specifically, we looked at computational methods for predicting the mean velocity field with the aid of turbulence closure schemes. In combusting flows the picture is greatly complicated by the interactions between the chemistry and the turbulence. The chemical reactions occurring locally in these flow fields add many complexities to the overall physicochemical process.
