Mixing models for the twowaycoupling of CFD codes and zerodimensional multizone codes to model HCCI combustion
The objective of this work is the development of a consistent mixing model for the twowaycoupling of a CFD code and a multizone code based on multiple zerodimensional reactors. The twowaycoupling allows for a computationally efficient modeling of HCCI combustion. The physical domain in the CFD code is subdivided into multiple zones based on three phase variables (fuel mixture fraction, dilution, and total enthalpy). Those phase variables are sufficient for the description of the thermodynamic state of each zone, assuming that each zone is at the same pressure. Each zone in the CFD code is represented by a corresponding zonemore »

A parallel multidomain solution methodology applied to nonlinear thermal transport problems in nuclear fuel pins
This paper describes an efficient and nonlinearly consistent parallel solution methodology for solving coupled nonlinear thermal transport problems that occur in nuclear reactor applications over hundreds of individual 3D physical subdomains. Efficiency is obtained by leveraging knowledge of the physical domains, the physics on individual domains, and the couplings between them for preconditioning within a Jacobian Free Newton Krylov method. Details of the computational infrastructure that enabled this work, namely the open source Advanced MultiPhysics (AMP) package developed by the authors is described. Details of verification and validation experiments, and parallel performance analysis in weak and strong scaling studies demonstratingmore »
