David Sheen, Graduate Student

sheen_at_usc_dot_edu

 

My research at the Combustion Kinetics Laboratory is in the field of uncertainty analysis and model optimization.  I am an expert in 0-D and 1-D flame simulations, and the lab’s resident Fortran and Linux guru.  I also maintain the laboratory’s Beowulf cluster and the JetSurF website. 

 

My main research focus is the Method of Uncertainty Quantification using Polynomial Chaos Expansions, currently in preparation.  Our intent is to use this method to develop a comprehensive small hydrocarbon (C0-4) reaction model for use in the large-eddy simulations of turbulent reactors.  This reaction model is based on the USC-Mech II, available here, and will be a component of JetSurF.
