Combustion Institute Winter School on Combustion

25-28 January 2016

Eindhoven University of Technology

Eindhoven, The Netherlands


The objective of this 4-day course is to bring the participants to the forefront of modern computational and experimental methods for premixed and non-premixed gaseous combustion processes by giving insight into the underlying physical/chemical principles and mathematical descriptions. Starting from the governing equations for chemically reacting flows, state-of-the-art models will be derived for laminar and turbulent flames, by means of which their physical and chemical behaviour will be analysed. Computational issues for modelling these systems numerically will be discussed as well. A further focus is on the use of laser-diagnostic methods, such as LIF, Raman, CARS, and PIV, to measure local species concentrations, temperatures and flow velocities in high-temperature, chemically reacting flow systems. Practical applications will be studied for a number of examples, such as ceramic surface burners, gas turbines and furnaces. The theory is tested and illustrated with simple experimental exercises in the laboratory and with numerical exercises using a code for modelling simple 1D-flame structures.

The course is intended for graduate scientists and engineers, equipped with a firm basic knowledge in fluid mechanics, heat transport and combustion science, who have started to specialise in the field of Combustion.

The course is supported by the Combustion Institute<>, ERCOFTAC</> and  J.M. Burgerscentrum<> for Fluid Mechanics (JMBC).
