Welcome to the website for the Computational Turbulent Reacting Flow Laboratory (CTRFL) in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. Our basic research interests encompass the development and utilization of high-fidelity computational tools to gain a fundamental understanding of and develop first-principles based models for turbulent (and laminar) reacting (and non-reacting) flows. Engineering applications of interest to the research group include gas turbines and reciprocating engines.
