Fuel efficiency through exascale simulations
Current technological development is already looking towards exascale computing, which will bring processing speeds of a quintillion calculations per second (10 in the 18th power). These advanced numerical calculations will create simulations that are truer to large-scale processes and lead to life-changing applications. The Exa-FireFlows project is focusing on these advancements specifically for fossil fuel combustion and the reacting flows involved. As the use of fossil fuels is expected to continue as a main transportation and power-producing source for the next 50 years, using advanced models to simulate reacting flows will directly impact fuel efficiency, contribute to reduced pollution and introduce efficient alternative fuels.
