Welcome to the MacArt Reacting Turbulence Lab at the University of Notre Dame.

We seek to understand interactions of flow physics with “additional” physical phenomena, including chemical heat release and plasma kinetics, by developing and using high-performance computational tools. These include large-scale direct numerical simulations (DNS), modeled large–eddy simulations (LES) and Reynolds–averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) simulations, and advanced physics-constrained machine learning (ML) tools. Our applications of interest span a range of engineering systems from gas turbines to hypersonic propulsion.
