Simulation of multiphase turbulent reacting flows is an example of a multiphysics, multiscale problem that presents challenges for modeling and high-performance simulation. Modeling challenges arise from the multitude of coupled processes occurring over a wide range of length and time scales. Identifying controlling variables that allow us to take advantage of slowly-evolving manifolds is of key importance from a modeling perspective. Additional challenges arise when trying to build software that supports many different modeling choices while maintaining scalability and efficiency. This talk will highlight progress in addressing these challenges in the context of simulating multiphase turbulent reacting flows.
