Workshop on Turbulent Combustion of Sprays (TCS1)

7th June 2009

Porticcio – Ajaccio (Corsica)

Organized by:

  • 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)
  • Dr. Albert Simeoni (Università di Corsica, Corte - France)

On 7 June 2009, the first Workshop on Turbulent Combustion of Sprays (‘TCS 1’) took place in Porticcio – Ajaccio (Corsica). The workshop started with a lecture, given by Prof. Assaad Masri (University of Sydney, Australia), on detailed experiments in spray combustion. After the lunch, Prof. Eva Gutheil (University of Heidelberg, Germany), provided an excellent overview of existing models in numerical simulations of turbulent spray combustion, pinpointing weaknesses and strengths. Throughout the workshop, and specifically during the poster session following the invited lectures, there was intensive discussion amongst the participants. This confirmed the hope of the organizers and invited speakers that this workshop can be the start of a series of workshops. A start was made with the identification of target test cases for comparison of numerical simulation results and for model development, to be discussed in future workshops. An extended organizing committee has been established for that purpose.  

The attendees have been encouraged to submit their work presented at the workshop to Flow, Turbulence and Combustion or to contribute a chapter in a book to appear in the ERCOFTAC book series.
