Turbulent reacting flow modeling: Recent developments in sub-grid scale signal reconstruction in flames and statistical methods for reactive-particle dynamics

The challenges of turbulent reactive flow modeling will be summarized in a first part, with examples given in the context of environmentally friendly systems for energy production and transformation industries. In a second part, new paradigms in sub-grid scale (SGS) modeling of turbulent flames (sources and fluxes) will be addressed using high-order methods with signal reconstruction (deconvolution). Finally, new statistical modeling of particle dynamics (nucleation, growth, agglomeration, oxidation) will be discussed, with applications to both sooting flames and crystallization in liquids, the latter using Lattice Boltzmann Method.
