Robert Patterson, WIAS:
Stochastic Soot Simulation
One major challenge in soot simulations is that the chemical reactivity and measurement response of the soot particles is influenced by structure both on the level of interatomic bonds and on the level of aggregate shape. I will describe a two-part stochastic method, where individual molecules within soot are simulated with the Gillespie SSA and the aggregate structures are simulated separately. Time permitting I will also discuss two strategies for coupling soot simulations to reacting flow calculations. This is joint work with Edward Yapp and Markus Kraft.
This talk is given as part of the CRC 1114 Spring School and will take place at
Lecture Hall Erhard-Schmidt-Hörsaal (ground floor).
