The Heterogeneous Multiscale Methods with Application to Combustion

Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 95)


The framework of the heterogeneous multiscale methods (HMM) is briefly reviewed. Both the original HMM and the seamless HMM are discussed. Applications to interface capturing and flame front tracking are presented.
