This special topic is organized in honor of Prof. Michael Pfitzner, who has made substantial contributions to our understanding of turbulent flames. Prof. Pfitzner‘s contributions are diverse and cover experimental, theoretical, and numerical analyses of turbulent combustion and heat transfer in gas turbines, rocket combustion chambers or Diesel engines, including atomization, vaporization and the mixing of liquid fuels at supercritical conditions. In honor of Prof. Pfitzner‘s scientific contributions, and to help address global challenges in energy economy and environmental safety, we present the following contributions which represent the current state of the art in modeling turbulent reacting flows.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Turbulent combustion
- Data-driven modeling
- Numerical, analytical, and experimental fluid dynamics
