An adaptive finite element method (FEM) is used for the solution of turbulent reactive flows in 3-D utilizing parallel methods for fluid dynamic and combustion modeling associated with engines. A dynamic LES method permits transition from laminar to turbulent flow without the assumptions usually required for turbulent sublayers near wall area. This capability is ideal for engine configurations where there is no equilibrium in the turbulent wall layers and the flow is not always turbulent and often in transition. The developed adaptive FEM flow solver uses “h” adaptation to provide for grid refinement. The FEM solver has been optimized for parallel processing employing the message passing interface (MPI) for clusters and high-performance computers. © 2018, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
