Numerical Study on Super/Hypersonic Flow, Mixing, and Combustion Phenomena

Call for Papers

Super/hypersonic flow, mixing, and combustion processes are ubiquitous in next-generation aircrafts and propulsion devices, for example, in the hypersonic aircraft and scramjet. Knowledge on physical mechanisms of high-speed compressible flow, mixing, and combustion has both important academic meaning and engineering value for developing effective flow control approaches, predicting accurately aerodynamic force and heat of aircrafts, and enhancing propulsion efficiency. As is known, experimental studies related to high-speed flows are very expensive and take time. Therefore, along with the development of computation technology, not only the computer hardware but also the calculation algorithm and software, numerical simulations play important roles in the study of super/hypersonic flow, mixing, and combustion processes. Numerical simulations can reduce research costs and provide the convenience in side of discovering new flow phenomena, recognizing flow details, extending research topics, and so forth. In recent years, remarkable advances have been achieved in studies of transition prediction of super/hypersonic flow, physics of compressible turbulence, supersonic mixing, heat transfer in high-speed flows, and supersonic turbulent combustion by using the numerical simulation technology.

This special issue focuses on the latest advancements in numerical simulation on super/hypersonic flow, mixing, and combustion phenomena. We invite investigators to contribute to the special issue with original research articles as well as review articles on numerical investigations on high-speed compressible and reactive turbulent flows as well as their applications to solve engineering problems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Flow transition prediction
  • Compressible flow stability
  • DNS or LES of compressible turbulence
  • Compressible turbulent models and their applicability evaluation
  • High-speed two-phase flows
  • Supersonic mixing
  • Jets and mixing layer flows
  • Shock waves and their interaction with turbulence
  • Interactions of shock waves and flame
  • Internal flows of scramjet
  • Aerodynamic heat or heat transfer
  • Drag reduction and flow controls
  • New numerical methods or mesh technology for compressible flows
  • Verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification of numerical methods
