Best Practice Guidelines for CFD of turbulent combustion including emission prediction and virtual prototyping
Design and operation of modern combustion systems (gas turbine engines, IC engines, process furnaces) faces the need to combine high efficiency with low pollutants emissions. Computational Fluid Dynamics has become a powerful tool in design of these systems. Many numerical models exist, each having a range of applicability, computational cost and accuracy. Consequently, CFD experts involved in combustor simulations, in addition to usual CFD skills, need specific insight and knowledge in combustion,heat transfer and emission modelling in order to conduct thorough analysis. The present course addresses this need.
In this course, the participants will learn the best practices in CFD of combustion systems. They will discover:
1) How to select models2) How to validate numerical simulations, and3) Which accuracy to expect.4) Interactions between fuel injection, turbulence,heat release and thermal radiation are critical in determining flame structure and pollutant emissions, and a major part of the course is devoted to themThe lectures of this course, all by well-known experts in the field, cover from basics to applications.The course is partially based on the ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guide on CFD of combustion, a copy of which will be provided to the participants.In the course also the link will be made with the CFD programs and cases of interest for the participants. As a result, the course provides the means for CFD analysts to significantly enhance their use of commercial and open-source CFD software for combustion engineering applications.
IFRF 2018 Conference
The IFRF 2018 Conference will take place on 30-31 May 2018 in Sheffield, UK. This two-day event will look back at the achievements of IFRF over the last 70 years and use this as a platform to showcase future work.
37th International Symposium on Combustion
The biennial symposium provides a scientific venue for sharing ideas and experiences on the applications of combustion. Detailed information will be made available for participants in 2018. Dublin offers a rich cultural heritage that brims with history and art, complemented by an impressive range of restaurants, cafés, and shops. Supported by a solid reputation for education and innovation, the city has become the center for many of Europe’s leading institutions. Ireland’s scenic coastlines and picturesque mountains encompass Dublin, providing visitors both modern and ancient experiences for a memorable adventure.
