Topics of interest include the simulation of fires, flame spread, and smoke transport for fire safety application. Fires, which are outdoors and in enclosures, are considered. Numerical approaches involve both large-eddy simulation and direct numerical simulation of the phenomena. Topics of interest include algorithm development numerical combustion, scientific visualization, and data analysis.
