Colorful Computational Combustion

Many fluid dynamics problems are so complicated that they require supercomputers to calculate the mathematical and physical details. This image shows a computer simulation of a cold ethylene jet combusting in hot air. Different colors indicate different combustion by-products. Researchers use simulations like this one to investigate ideal flames that improve efficiency in applications like cars or jet engines. #
