Software development at CTRFL is the culmination of our model development efforts, and these software packages are made publicly available, open-source, and restriction free. This page includes brief descriptions of this software and will ultimately include links to the software and documentation once ready for public release. Additional information on our current software development efforts will continue to be updated.
PDRs: Physically-Derived Reduced-Order Manifolds
A new solver has been developed for a two-dimensional manifold approach for modeling multi-modal turbulent combustion. The solver also includes the capability for one-dimensional manifolds valid in the asymptotic limits of nonpremixed and premixed combustion. The software will be available as an independent program that can be utilized to precompute manifolds or as a callable library that can be integrated into a flow solver to adaptively compute these manifolds or to account for history effects. Release of this software will occur in February, pending finalizing of licensing terms.
Development of PDRs is funded by the Army Research Office, Grant #W911NF-17-1-0391.
PUmp: Princeton University Multi-Physics
An all-new in-house, flexibly parallel flow solver is currently under initial development. The first phase of this project will combine our manifold-based approaches to turbulent combustion modeling with an all Mach number flow solver with MPI/OpenMP hybrid parallelization. Subsequent phases will introduce capabilities for additional physics, complex geometries, and more flexible parallelization on a wider range of emerging architectures. A release date for this software is still indeterminate.
