The projects below were developed as part of the graduate course MAE643 Computational Combustion taught at Cornell in 2004 and 2006. In each project, the student is led through a computational exercise which both provides instruction in the use of the software and also provides insights into the physics and chemistry involved. The focus of the projects is on: the thermochemistry and kinetics of ideal gas mixtures; laminar premixed and nonpremixed flames; and turbulent non-premixed flames. The software used is Chemkin IV (for laminar flames) and Fluent (for turbulent flames).

These projects may be used by instructors in similar courses, or by students for independent study.
