7th International Workshop on Turbulent Combustion of Sprays (TCS7)

June 16, 2019, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain.

The aim of this workshop series is to stimulate progress in the understanding of turbulent spray combustion by organizing focused discussions on open problems and promising new initiatives and collaborations in this area. A long term objective is to advance capabilities to model turbulent spray flows, both reacting and non-reacting. In order to do so it links recent developments in studies of dispersed multiphase flow and combustion. The intention is to have interactive discussion between experts and young researchers and between modelers and experimentalists.

A 7th workshop will focus on dense sprays. Previous workshops have mainly investigated the so-called dilute region away from the burner where a droplet spray has already been formed and the emphasis can be put on evaporation and combustion processes and their impact on emissions. However, limited knowledge and understanding of the dense spray region leads to large uncertainty on the boundary conditions for the dilute spray region. And it is a bottleneck for accurate predictions of spray flame behavior. New experimental techniques and modeling techniques are being developed make progress in understanding the dense spray region. They will be reviewed and discussed at the workshop.
