[News] New NSF Award focusing on Big Data

Prof. Chrysanthis and Prof. Labrinidis, together with colleagues from the School of Engineering (Prof. Peyman Givi, PI) and the Math Department (Prof. William Layton) received new research funding from the National Science Foundation for their project entitled "Appraisal of Subgrid Scale Closures in Reacting Turbulence via DNS Big Data." The project will employ a range of strategies and computational tools for utilizing DNS data to appraise the performance of large eddy simulation (LES) predictions in turbulent combustion. The study will pave the way for LES to become the primary means of predictions for future design and manufacturing of combustion systems, while building a data sharing infrastructure, and providing educational and outreach programs to students at all levels.
