Workshop on Measurement and Computation of Turbulent Spray Combustion
The aim of this workshop is to stimulate progress in the understanding of turbulent spray combustion by organising focused discussions on open problems and promising new initiatives and collaborations in this area. The workshop will link recent developments in studies of dispersed multiphase flow and combustion.
The intention is to have interactive discussion between experts and young researchers. Two invited lectures, given by experts in the field of turbulent spray combustion (one experimental and one computational), will initiate discussions, whereas participants will have the opportunity to present their work in contributed poster presentations. An important aspect of this workshop will be round-table discussions, which will focus on the assessment of state-of-the-art and on initiation of future collaboration in experimental as well as computational techniques in spray combustion. It is the intention to define some 'target test cases', for which experimental databases will be developed and on which modelling and numerical algorithm issues will be tested.
The workshop takes place on June 7, 2009. This is the day preceding the 6th Mediterranean Combustion Symposium, in Porticcio - Ajaccio Corsica. The workshop is held at the same venue.
The workshop is co-organized by ERCOFTAC special interest group 28 "Combustion" and the Belgian Section of the Combustion Institute.
Attendees are invited to present a poster during the workshop (see tentative program). A one-page abstract should be submitted to Reni.DeMeester@UGent.be, in pdf format. A book of abstracts will be distributed at the workshop.
The authors of valuable contributions will be recommended to submit full paper contributions for publication in the ERCOFTAC Book Series or a Special Issues of "Flow, Turbulence and Combustion" after a careful reviewing process.
The workshop will take place in the Coralia Hotel, Porticcio, Ajaccio, Corsica. This is the same resort where the Meditteranean Combustion Symposium takes place. Attendees are encouraged to stay in this hotel. Reservations must be made directly with the hotel.
