Previous studies on physical boundary conditions for flame–boundary interactions of an ideal, multicomponent, compressible gas have neglected reactive source terms in their boundary condition treatments. By combining analyses of incompletely parabolic systems with those based on the hyperbolic Euler equations, a rational set of boundary conditions is(More)
Multimodal distribution functions that result from Monte Carlo simulations can be interpreted by superimposing joint probability density functions onto the contour space of the simulated calculations. The method is demonstrated by analysis of the pathway of a radioactive groundwater contaminant using an analytical solution to the transport equation.(More)
The derivation of low-storage, explicit Runge–Kutta (ERK) schemes has been performed in the context of integrating the compressible Navier–Stokes equations via direct numerical simulation. Optimization of ERK methods is done across the broad range of properties, such as stability and accuracy efficiency, linear and nonlinear stability, error control(More)
