Extension of the above sooting flame work to 3D is underway. This will
combine the previous 2D work with the current 3D LES/FMDF code to enable
the influence of subgrid-scale turbulence/soot-chemistry/radiation
interactions in a consistent fashion. Stay tuned!
Results from the solution of a radiative transfer equation using a parallel
version of the Discrete Ordinate Method (DOM) with S-6 approximation.
This is a 3D rectangular enclosure with cold temperatures at the boundary
and three hot spots inside the domain
Shown below are blocks and meshes showing 3D domain decomposition for a
DOM calculation on 8 processors.
Shown below are isosurfaces of temperature (T=1500 K) showing the hot spots and
the sum of the intensities in all the directions resolved along the centerline X-Y, Y-Z and X-Z faces.
