Distributions of nine components of the velocity gradient tensor in the volume centered at the spark plug at SOIgn (342 °aTDCe) for two different LES models. The distributions are sampled at all volume nodes in the region for the 60 simulated cycles (total sample size of 370k). Three distributions are shown for each component: all 60 cycles, the 10 fastest-burning cycles, and the 10 slowest-burning cycles. This is the same as Figure 14, but plotted using a logarithmic scale.
