Abstract
Development of scramjet engines is hindered by the lack of fast and accurate turbulent reacting flow CFD tools. Reaction Systems, LLC proposes to investigate new methods to extract minimal kinetic mechanisms from large detailed kinetic mechanisms to substantially decrease the number of additional species conservation equations required in CFD simulations of turbulent reacting flows. If successful, this approach will substantially improve both the accuracy and productivity of CFD-based scramjet design work.
