Title: 

LES of flow and combustion in a rotating detonation engine coupled to a turbine

Short description: 

Simulation and analysis of a rotating detonation combustor, using CERFACS's LES code AVBP. Analysis of the flow field in the combustor for different points of operation. 

Additional coupling to a turbine to study the interactions of the combustor and subsequent turbine stages.
