Abstract : Progress has been made in developing a computational procedure to calculate the properties of two-dimensional turbulent reactive flow fields appropriate to gas turbine combustors. The flow field is calculated by a standard finite-difference technique while a Monte Carlo method is used to solve the transport equation for the joint pdf of the species mass fractions. In the course of this project, a more accurate and efficient grid-free Monte Carlo method has been devised and an improved model of turbulent mixing has been developed. For plane constant-density flows, the Monte Carlo method has been implemented in a computer program. (Author)
