Welcome to the JAFM online scientific journal system
Dear JAFM Authors and Contributors
I would like to express my appreciation to all Authors and Reviewers of Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics (JAFM) on behalf of editorial boards and the publisher, Isfahan University of Technology.
Due to authors trust in considering JAFM as a platform for publishing their valuable research outcome and the efforts made by our reviewers to assure the quality of manuscripts published in JAFM, I am pleased to announce the growth of JAFM impact factor to 1.09 in 2017.  I also wish to acknowledge the commitment and voluntary contributions of our Associate Editors. There is no doubt that the recent success of the journal is not possible without their support. At the end, I would like to thank the hard work of our professional staff during the various stages of processing manuscripts in JAFM.

JAFM is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal with a scope that covers all aspects of theoretical, numerical and experimental fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the applied rather than purely mathematical aspects of fluid mechanics.

 

JAFM offers a rapid and high quality peer-review process overseen by its distinguished international Editorial Board. The journal benefits from an efficient online submission process and online publication upon acceptance.

 

JAFM papers are freely available and the accepted papers are published free of cost.

 


For further assistance for submitting manuscripts, the JAFM secretary may be contacted by the following email address: secretary@jafmonline.net.

Title : RANS Simulation of Turbulent Diffusive Combustion using Open Foam
Pages : 669-682
Authors : Luis Felipe Gutiérrez,  J. Tamagno,  Sergio Amado Elaskar, 
Anstract : Schemes to write the flow equations in discreet form, solution solvers, pre and post data processing utilitiesprovidedbyOpenFoamlibraries, areusedtobuildafinitevolumeexecutableforsimulatinga low speed, turbulent and rate controlled diffusive CH4-Air combustion. Unsteady Favre’s averaged turbulent conservation equations (total mass, momentum, energy and species mass fractions), are used to describe the combustion gas dynamics, and to handle turbulence a modified k- ε model is applied. Several global kinetic mechanisms, one step, two and four steps have been considered to describe the oxidation process of CH4 in a free jet type flame. The interaction between chemistry and turbulence, is modeled according to the partially stirred reactor (PaSR) concept. To improve convergence and accuracy in solving low speed fluid dynamic equations, a pressure implicit with splitting of operators (PISO) technique extended to cover high temperature flows, is utilized. The exponential dependence of the chemical kinetics from temperature, makes stiffs the ODE’s needed to determine source average values with which the species conservation equations are solved. To deal with the stiffness issue, OpenFoam provides numerical schemes that guaranties the stability of the computation. Comparisons between results of numerical simulations and experimental data obtained with the benchmark known as flame “D”, are presented.
