The "velocity filtered density function" (VFDF) methodology is employed for large eddy simulation (LES) of a three-dimensional, temporally developing, turbulent mixing layer. A transport equation is derived for the VFDF in which the effects of the subgrid scale (SGS) convection appear in closed form. The unclosed terms in this equation are modeled. A system(More)
Large eddy simulation (LES) is conducted of the Sandia Flame D [Proc. Combust. Inst. 27 (1998) 1087, Sandia National Laboratories (2004)], which is a turbulent piloted nonpremixed methane jet flame. The subgrid scale (SGS) closure is based on the scalar filtered mass density function (SFMDF) methodology [J. Fluid Mech. 401 (1999) 85]. The SFMDF is basically(More)
A novel computational methodology, termed “Irregularly Portioned Lagrangian Monte Carlo” (IPLMC) is developed for large eddy simulation (LES) of turbulent flows. This methodology is intended for use in the filtered density function (FDF) formulation and is particularly suitable for simulation of chemically reacting flows on massively parallel platforms. The(More)
With the explosion of large, dynamic graph datasets from various fields, graph partitioning and repartitioning are becoming more and more critical to the performance of many graph-based Big Data applications, such as social analysis, web search, and recommender systems. However, well-studied graph (re)partitioners usually assume a homogeneous and(More)
"Turbulence is the most important unsolved problem of classical physics". That was Richard Feynman decades ago, referring to a century old problem. Today, the situation is no different. Turbulent combustion, which deals with a fluid mixture reacting and mixing under turbulent conditions (as found in rockets, jet engines, power generators, car engines,(More)

The objectives of this research are: (1) to develop and implement a new methodology for large eddy simulation of (LES) of high-speed reacting turbulent flows. (2) To develop algebraic turbulence closures for statistical description of chemically reacting turbulent flows. We have just completed the third year of Phase III of this research. This is the Final(More)
