Best Practice Guidelines for CFD of Turbulent Combustion including an introduction to machine learning tools
The participants will learn the best practices in CFD of turbulent combustion. It introduces the latest trends in the use of machine- learning based approaches to improve the understanding of turbulent reacting flow and develop more efficient and accurate numerical models. The lectures of this course, all by well-known experts in the field, cover from basics to applications. The course is partially based on the ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guidelines on CFD of Turbulent Combustion.
