Professor Jayachandran's research is focused on understanding fundamental aspects of reacting flows at thermodynamic conditions of relevance to aircraft, rocket, and automobile propulsion. One aspect of his research involves measurement of fundamental flame properties using carefully designed low-dimensional experiments while avoiding complications associated with turbulence, heat loss, and instabilities. Another focus is to develop an understanding of such phenomena using direct numerical simulations incorporating detailed descriptions of chemical kinetics and molecular transport.
