The general areas of research in CCL are in Turbulent, Turbulent Combustion and Numerical Algorithms. More specifically, studies employ large-eddy simulations (LES), and sometimes Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) and direct numerical simulations (DNS) to study the effects of turbulence-chemistry-flame in both canonical and complex configurations.
