The Combustion Institute’s leading publication leverages Raman’s research strength
U-M Aerospace’s own Professor Venkat Raman has been named associate editor for Combustion & Flame, the leading journal in the field of combustion. Combustion & Flame is the official monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal of the Combustion Institute. Its mission is to publish the best work on the fundamentals of combustion phenomena.
Raman is an expert in this field. He focuses his research on the development of computational models for turbulent reacting flows with application to aircraft and scramjet engines, stationary power generation and synthesis of novel materials. Just this year, Professor Raman was awarded DoD MURI funding for his research that examined a new generation of propulsion systems based on sustained detonations. His project focused around numerical simulations of drop-shock interactions using a new approach for resolving the gas-liquid interface. This system has considerable utility in hypersonics, aircrafts and power generation systems.
Earlier this year, Professor Raman was elected a Fellow of the Combustion Institute. He was distinguished for outstanding contributions to combustion for his research advancing the computational modeling of gas turbines, scramjets and detonation engines.
Apart from being an incredible accomplishment of peer recognition for leadership in his field, this is a particularly moving accomplishment for Professor Raman, whose first paper on combustion was published in this journal.
