The numerical simulation of turbulent reactive flows is a complex and challenging problem with widespread practical use. Recent breakthroughs in algorithmic techniques and the drastic increase in computing power have provided us with the tools to understand the complex interaction between turbulence and chemical reactions. In the past decade, the use of the large-eddy simulation (LES) technique has made it possible to make accurate predictions of turbulent flows even for complex configurations.
