6th Workshop on Measurement and Computation of Turbulent Spray Combustion (TCS6)

September 17, 2017, 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:

Poster session enabling all participants to show their work in progress
Discussion sessions to identify essential topics needing further investigation


Information about registration will be provided shortly.

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 the same venue.

The workshop is co-organized by ERCOFTAC special interest group 28 "Reactive Flows".
