3rd International Workshop on the Turbulent Combustion of Sprays

3rd International Workshop on the Turbulent Combustion of Sprays (TCS3)

Rottmannsaal, Heidelberg-Handschuhsheim, Germany

2nd September 2012, 10-00 to 17-00

Motivation and themes

The general aim of this workshop is to report on the progress of experimental and numerical techniques in turbulent spray combustion. The intention is to have interactive discussion between experts and young researchers. Therefore, poster sessions play a central role.

In TCS 3, a comparative study is pursued for numerical simulations a number of target test cases. They involve three non-reacting sprays (SP06, SP02 and SP07) and three reacting ethanol sprays (Et06, Et02 and Et07), studied experimentally at the University of Sydney. If you intend to participate in this study, please contact Prof. Bart Merci ( and Prof. Assaad Masri (

The basic philosophy is collaboration, not competition, with focus on problems encountered. An important aspect of the TCS workshops is indeed to 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.

The workshop takes place on Sunday September 2, 2012. This is the day preceding the 12th International Conference on Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems, in Heidelberg, Germany. The workshop is held at the same venue.

The workshop is co-organized by ERCOFTAC special interest group 28 “Reactive Flows”, the Multiphase and Combustion group of IWR Heidelberg, SFB 568 TU Darmstadt and the Belgian Section of the Combustion Institute.
