Combustion Theory and Modelling is devoted to the application of mathematical modelling, numerical simulation and experimental techniques to the study of combustion. Experimental studies that are published in the Journal should be closely related to theoretical issues, by highlighting fundamental theoretical questions or by providing a sound basis for comparison with theory.
Combustion Theory & Modelling aims:
- To publish original research on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to: premixed laminar flames, laminar diffusion flames, turbulent combustion, fires, chemical kinetics, pollutant formation, microgravity, materials synthesis, vapour deposition, catalysis, droplet and spray combustion, detonation dynamics, thermal explosions, ignition, energetic materials and propellants, burners and engine combustion.
- To present innovative applications to complex practical problems.
- To foster interactions between modelling approaches in different areas.
A wide range of mathematical methods may also be used, including large scale numerical simulation, hybrid computational schemes, front tracking, adaptive mesh refinement, optimized parallel computation, asymptotic methods and singular perturbation techniques, along with studies in bifurcation theory, optimization methods, dynamical systems theory, cellular automata and discrete, probabilistic and statistical methods.
All papers will undergo rigorous peer review prior to acceptance and publication.
