6th Workshop on Measurement and Computation of Turbulent Spray Combustion (TCS6)
September 17, 2017, Hotel Royal Continental, Naples, Italy
The aim of this workshop series 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. A long term objective is to advance capabilities to model turbulent spray flows, both reacting and non-reacting. In order to do so it links recent developments in studies of dispersed multiphase flow and combustion. The intention is to have interactive discussion between experts and young researchers and between modelers and experimentalists.
In order to reach the objectives a program is set up with the following elements:
Two keynote lectures, respectively more research oriented and more application oriented:
- "Large Eddy Simulation of turbulent spray flames" by Dr. Bénédicte Cuenot (CERFACS, Toulouse, France)
- "Current and Future Challenges in Sprays for Automotive Applications" by Dr. Tang-Wei Kuo (General Motors Company, Detroit, MI, USA)
Discussion of joint comparative studies of numerical simulations of a number of target test cases for which extensive experimental databases are available:
Sydney University spray burner
Contact person: Prof. Assaad R. Masri Documentation file explaining the experiments can be found here.
CORIA Rouen spray burner
Contact person: Prof. Bruno Renou Documentation file explaining the experiments can be found here.
Cambridge University swirling spray burner
Contact person: Prof. Epaminondas Mastorakos Documentation file explaining the experiments can be found here.
- Sydney University spray burner
Poster session enabling all participants to show their work in progress
Discussion sessions to identify essential topics needing further investigation
Databases and proceedings
In preparation of the workshop a special effort is made to collect and compile the best possible experimental datasets useful for model validation. The databases remain available for use afterwards and in a number of cases are suitable for inclusion in the ERCOFTAC wiki.
The proceedings reporting on results of this and previous workshops will be published as a journal special issue.
Location and date
The TCS workshop takes place on Sunday September 17, 2017. This is the day preceding the 10th Mediterranean Combustion Symposium. The workshop is held at Sala Normanna, the Hotel Royal Continental, Via Partenope 38/44, Lungomare Caracciolo, 80121 Naples, Italy.
