The focus of this research has been removing impediments to scalable performance of unsteady, reacting flow simulations over tens of millions of computational grids over ten thousand cores as well as testing of a new multi-step kinetic mechanism. Using a CH4-Air premixed combustor and two different grids, message passing algorithms were improved to maintain high parallel efficiency. This refined software makes LES simulations of combustor flows for several flow-through times with turnaround time of no more than a few days.
