Filtered Reaction Rate Modelling in Moderate and High Karlovitz Number Flames: an a Priori Analysis

Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of statistically planar flames at moderate and high Karlovitz number (Ka) have been used to perform an a priori evaluation of a presumed-PDF model approach for filtered reaction rate in the framework of large …


An Analysis of Turbulent Mixing Effects on the Soot Formation in High Pressure n-dodecane Sprays

An n-dodecane spray flame, known as Spray A, is simulated under the diesel engine conditions. The simulations are based on the well-mixed assumption where the turbulence-chemistry interactions are ignored, and employ the semi-empirical multi-step …


High-Speed Imaging of Turbulent Nonpremixed Syngas Flames at Elevated Pressures

To address the paucity of experimental data on well-documented turbulent jet flames at elevated pressures, a high pressure rig has been used to explore turbulent nonpremixed syngas flames at elevated pressures and very high Reynolds numbers.

Flameless Combustion Characteristics of Producer Gas Premixed Charge in a Cyclone Combustor

Producer gas (PG) flameless combustion in a premixed cyclone combustor was investigated experimentally and numerically. The experiment was carried out over different premixed charges of air/fuel mixture and inlet nozzle diameters under PG fuel …

Propagation of Spherically Expanding Turbulent Flames into Fuel Droplet-Mists

The effects of droplet diameter and the overall (liquid+gas) equivalence ratio on flame topology and propagation statistics in spherically expanding turbulent n-heptane spray flames have been analysed based on three-dimensional Direct Numerical …

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.
