Towards Exascale Simulations of Turbulent Combustion with Complex Chemistry

Advances in massively parallel computing hardware enabled high fidelity simulations of turbulent combustion at unprecedented physical scales with chemical complexities. The presentation will start with an overview of current status in the KARFS (KAUST Adaptive Reacting Flows Solver) project, a new direct numerical simulation (DNS) code for reacting flows for hybrid CPU+X architecture. The new code has been applied to a number of physical studies, such as turbulent premixed flame at high Reynolds/Karlovitz numbers, bluff-body flame stabilization, and auto-ignition of premixed reactants in the presence of temperature fluctuations. Key challenges and scientific findings from these studies will be discussed.
