2nd Workshop on Measurement and Computation of Turbulent Spray Combustion (TCS2)

2nd Workshop on Measurement and Computation of Turbulent Spray Combustion (TCS2)

Chia Laguna Conference Centre, Cagliari, Sardinia

Sunday September 11th, 2011

Co-organised by:
 ERCOFTAC SIG 28 and The Belgian Section of The Combustion Institute

Organising Committee:

Prof. Bart Merci (Ghent University, Belgium)
Prof. Dirk Roekaerts (Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands)
Prof. Amsini Sadiki (Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany)
Mr. Reni De Meester (Ghent University, Belgium)

The aim of this workshop is to report on the progress of experimental and numerical techniques in two-phase flows, with emphasis on spray combustion.

The intention is to have interactive discussion between experts and young researchers. One invited lecture, providing an overview on recent experimental and one computational achievements in the field of turbulent spray combustion, will initiate discussions, whereas participants will have the opportunity to present their work in contributed poster presentations. Furthermore, an update will be provided on progress since TCS1. 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 Sunday September 11th, 2011. This is the day preceding the 7th Mediterranean Combustion Symposium, in Chia Laguna, Cagliari, Sardinia. The workshop is held at the same venue.


The workshop will take place in the Chia Laguna Conference Centre in Cagliari, Sardinia. This is the same venue where the Mediterranean Combustion Symposium takes place. Attendees are encouraged to stay in this hotel. Reservations must be made directly with the hotel.
