Design and operation of modern combustion systems faces the need to combine high efficiency with low emissions and good flame stability. Computational Fluid Dynamics has become a powerful tool in design and analysis of a wide range of combustion systems (furnaces, gas turbines, engines, …). It describes the combination of turbulent flow, chemical reactions and radiative heat transfer, but it is not a unique modeling method. Many models are available each having a range of applicability, computational cost and accuracy. Consequently, CFD experts doing turbulent combustion simulations, in addition to usual CFD skills, need insight and skills in combustion modeling in order to do the analysis correctly. The present course addresses this need.
The lectures of this course, all by well-known experts in the field, cover from basics to applications with focus on model selection and validation, radiative heat transfer, gas turbines and flame stability.
The course is held at the occasion of the publication of the ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guide on CFD of combustion, a copy of which will be provided to the participants.
