Simulations of Low Mach Number Reactive Flows Coupled with Electric Fields

Lucas Esclapez, Marc Day, John Bell

Research output: NRELPresentation


Applying electric fields to flames can provide an effective, non-invasive control of the combustion process. In this work, an algorithm recently introduced to handle the interactions between reactive flows and an electric field is extended to handle multiple dimensions and adaptive mesh refinement (AMR), and applied to a series of laminar flames. Experimental data allows to validate the ability of the algorithm to capture the mechanisms driving the flame response to electric fields.
