The aim of this workshop 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. The workshop will link recent developments in studies of dispersed multiphase flow and combustion. A long term objective of the Workshop series is to advance capabilities to model turbulent spray flows, both reacting and non-reacting. The intention is to have interactive discussion between experts and young researchers. Therefore, poster and discussion sessions play a central role in the program. The preliminary program may be found here.
The workshop takes place on Sunday June 7, 2015. This is the day preceding the 9th Mediterranean Combustion Symposium. The workshop is held at the same venue.
In the frame of TCS5 workshop a comparative study will be made of numerical simulations of a number of target test cases.
A set of test cases has been selected from the databases created by Assaad Masri's combustion group at University Sydney. The Sydney burner uses a nebuliser to create a well-defined droplet stream of ethanol or acetone, and uses a pilot flame. The Sydney target test cases selected for TCS5 have already been studied in previous workshops, TCS3 and TCS4, and the simulations expected for TCS5 will focus on a set of important modeling issues as explained in the guidelines below.
The Delft burner uses a pressure-swirl atomizer to create the droplet spray, and either air or products of lean premixed flames (hot diluted coflow) as oxidizer. One of the ethanol flames of the Delft burner is proposed as target test case.
Researchers working on modeling of turbulent spray combustion are invited to perform simulations of the proposed target test flames and submit their results for presentation at the workshop.
