Effect of chemical reactions on the decay of isotropic homogeneous turbulence

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Direct numerical simulations, (DNS), are used to simulate the decay of an isotopic, turbulent, chemically-reacting flow at high temperatures. The independent parameters that govern the physical process are introduced. The different effects from each of the parameters in the flow are explained by using the results from the DNS. It is found that there is a feedback mechanism between the chemical reactions and the turbulent motion. This feedback is positive for exothermic reactions and negative for endothermic reactions.
