CTRFL research activities result in a variety of databases that may benefit the research of others. Public, restriction free sharing of large datasets remains a data transfer challenge, so simple links to raw data are not feasible. However, if you are interested in using any of the datasets below, please contact us, and we discuss your needs and how we can help. Datasets currently available are described on this page, and additional databases will be added as they become available.

Multiscalar Mixing DNS Data


Direct Numerical Simulations of three-component mixing in forced isotropic turbulence at an average Taylor scale Reynolds number of 83 were performed to study joint PDFs of two mixture fractions. The simulations were performed on a triply periodic cubic domain with 256^3 grid points. As shown in the images below, eleven different initial scalar configurations were considered in this study, which were all mixed using identical turbulent velocity fields.

Available Data

Three types of data from this study are available for all eleven configurations:

  • Raw data: The values of the three velocity components and the two mixture fractions for each configuration at every grid point, stored for 102 temporal snapshots spanning the initial unmixed state to the final fully mixed state. These data are available as binary files (180 GB total), and a Python code can be provided for reading the data.
  • Binned PDF data: The above raw data binned into joint and marginal PDFs of the two mixture fractions for each configuration, with 512 bins for each mixture fraction. These data are available as ASCII text files (184 MB total).
  • Moment data: Mean, (co-)variance, and skewness of the two mixture fractions for each configuration, stored at every DNS time step. These data are available as ASCII text files (4 MB total).


Sydney Inhomogeneous Inlet Flame Boundary Conditions


The piloted jet burner with inhomogeneous inlets developed at the University of Sydney is a well characterized burner designed to probe partially premixed, multi-modal combustion. It has been a target configuration for combustion models at recent International Workshop on Measurement and Computation of Turbulent Flames (TNF). The key feature of this burner is the compositionally inhomogeneous mixture at the burner exit, generating by inhomogeneous partial premixing of fuel and air within the burner. To aid in the comparison of simulations from various groups, well-resolved LES calculations of the mixing within the nozzle have been conducted to provide a standard boundary condition for the mixture fraction and velocity profile at the nozzle exit.

Available Data

The boundary condition datasets consist of unsteady cross-sections of the three components of the velocity, mixture fraction, and the square of the mixture fraction (to obtain the subfilter mixture fraction variance) at a location one diameter upstream of the burner exit. The data are provided in cylindrical coordinates (both the spatial components and the velocity components), corresponding to the axial (x/u), radial (y/v), and circumferential (z/w) directions. The cross-section has 161 points in the y-direction and 64 points in the z-direction. For each case, data are included for approximately 10,000 time steps spaced by 0.25 us. Datasets are available for the following cases:

  • FJ200-5GP-Lr75-57 (fuel/air mixing and air/air mixing)
  • FJ200-5GP-Lr75-80 (fuel/air mixing and air/air mixing)
  • FJ200-5GP-Lr300-59 (fuel/air mixing)

These data are available as binary files (4 GB each), and a C code can be provided for reading the files.
