Welcome to the website for the Computational Turbulent Reacting Flow Laboratory (CTRFL) in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. Our research focuses on computational prediction of multi-physics turbulent flows relevant to energy, propulsion, and their interactions with the environment. The aim of our research is to accelerate the development of net-zero energy systems, and, currently, our main application areas of interest include sustainable combustion (zero-carbon and carbon-neutral fuels) and offshore wind energy. Additionally, other application areas of interest include nuclear fusion and electric propulsion, concentrating solar energy, atmospheric aerosols, and industrial processes. Our research approach relies heavily on physics-based model development and computational algorithm development for heterogeneous high-performance computing architectures, both aided by and integrated with machine learning approaches and algorithms.
