DNS of an Oblique Jet in a Particle-Laden Crossflow: Study of Solid Phase Preferential Concentration and Particle-Wall Interaction

A DNS study of the interaction between an oblique laminar jet and a particle-laden crossflow is presented. The delivery tube is included in the simulation and jet in crossflow blowing ratio is set equal to 0.5, typical for gas turbine film cooling …


Effects of the Actuation on the Boundary Layer of an Airfoil at Reynolds Number Re = 60000

Synthetic (zero net mass flux) jets are an active flow control technique to manipulate the flow field in wall-bounded and free-shear flows. The present paper focuses on the role of the periodic actuation mechanisms on the boundary layer of a …

Effects of Turbulence and Temperature Fluctuations on Knock Development in an Ethanol/Air Mixture

The effects of turbulence on knock development and intensity for a thermally inhomogeneous stoichiometric ethanol/air mixture at a representative end-gas autoignition condition in internal combustion engines are investigated using direct numerical …


Dynamic Mode Decomposition Analysis of High-Fidelity CFD Simulations of the Sinus Ventilation

Physiologically, sinus ventilation is a critical aspect of good functionality for human respiratory function, the understanding of which is still unclear. In this study we develop a method to measure sinus ventilation. Spatial and temporal …

About this journal

Flow, Turbulence and Combustion provides a global forum for the publication of original and innovative research results that contribute to the solution of fundamental and applied problems encountered in single-phase, multi-phase and reacting flows, in both idealized and real systems. The scope of coverage encompasses topics in fluid dynamics, scalar transport, multi-physics interactions and flow/turbulence control. From time to time the journal publishes Special or Theme Issues featuring invited articles.

Contributions may report research that falls within the broad spectrum of analytical, computational and experimental methods. This includes research conducted in academia, industry and a variety of environmental and geophysical sectors. The emphasis is on originality, timeliness, quality and thematic fit, as exemplified by the title of the journal and the qualifications described above. Relevance to real-world problems and industrial applications are regarded as strengths.

Contributions may be full-length research and review manuscripts or short communications of no more than 6 printed pages. The latter may report new results, address contentious topics or discuss full-length papers previously published in the journal. Short contributions are likely to benefit from rapid publication in the separate category of Short Communications. All contributed manuscripts as well as invited contributions to Special or Theme Issues, will undergo rigorous peer review by three expert reviewers prior to decisions on acceptance.

Founded in 1948 as Applied Scientific Research, the journal has evolved from reporting general research results to its present focus on turbulent flows and related topics. The title Flow, Turbulence and Combustion, adopted in 1998, reflects this thematic inclination and focus.

Flow, Turbulence and Combustion is published in association with ERCOFTAC – the European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion. ERCOFTAC is an active worldwide association of universities, research institutes and industries collaborating in the area of fluid mechanics and combustion.
