Led by Philip Smith and Tom Fletcher

The Predictive Science Team is focusing on four key physics components that will improve the predictivity of simulations of the 350 MWe oxycoal-fired boiler:

  • turbulent fluid transport,
  • multiphase flow,
  • particle combustion, and
  • radiative heat transfer.

Advances in these four areas will provide predictions of a wider range of phenomena, over a wider range of space and time scales, with improved predictive accuracy and reduced uncertainty, or at least a better understanding of the uncertainty in comparison to existing capabilities. We anticipate the majority of the disciplinary advances will come as a result of the tight coupling between the predictive science team with the exascale and V/UQ activities.
