Title: Large Eddy Simulation of a Constant Volume Combustion chamber
The CVC chamber tested experimentally by ENSMA will be computed using the CERFACS high-fidelity compressible LES (Large Eddy Simulation) solver AVBP to assist the chambers design and to understand how to evaluate its performances. Consecutive cycles will be computed to investigate cyclic variations and understand how ignition interacts with turbulence, how the turbulent flame develops in these systems and the way to properly model these phenomena.
Supervisors: Prof. Dr. Thierry Poinsot, Dr. Davide Laera, Dr. Florent Duchaine
Mentor: Prof. Antonio Andreini

In 2017 I received my bachelor degree in Mechanical engineering at the Politecnico di Bari and in 2019 I got my master of science degree defending a thesis done in collaboration with the DAAA (Aérodynamique, aéroélasticité, acoustique) department of the Office National d’Etudes et de Recherches Aérospatiales (ONERA) in Meudon (France). This work dealt with topics such as compressible aerodynamics, uncertainty quantification and numerical modeling. The milestones of my background are energetic systems, fluid dynamics and numerical simulation.
