The relentless growth in computationalpower has created opportunities in many areas of science and engineering wherethe wide ranges of spatial and temporal scales have long prevented the problemsfrom being accurately tackled through computer simulations. One of these areasof great practical interest is the general field of turbulent reacting flowwhere temporal and spatial scales typically vary by several orders ofmagnitude. Consequently, the accurate prediction of turbulent reactive flow hasremained one of the most challenging engineering problems, despite being thesubject of intense research for decades. In this talk, we first discuss somenovel ideas for enhancing the performance of combustion systems. We will thenfocus on numerical simulation of turbulent flows using high-order spectralelement methods.
