15. Enforcing realizability in explicit multi-component species transport
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/5/2015
Authors: Randall Joseph McDermott, Kevin B McGrattan, Jason Floyd
Abstract: A strategy is proposed to guarantee realizability of species mass fractions in explicit time integration of the partial differential equations governing fire dynamics, which is multi-component transport problem. For a mixture of $n$ species, the c ...
