Multiphase Combustion: Theory and Modelling
(Online Mode)
5-9 December 2022
Course Overview

Combustion is still the world's most important and most widely used energy conversion technology. Potential environmental damage and limited resources of fossil fuels require more intensive efforts to better understand the underlying combustion processes, especially those resulting from liquid fuels and subsequent sprays. The fundamental knowledge of sprays and combustion is expected to improve the design of the industrial combustion systems by enhancing the flame stability, improving the combustion efficiency, and reduction in pollutant formation. The short course is intended to provide fundamental understanding of this multi-scale, multi-physics problem, i.e. combustion, sprays and their potential applications and challenges in the development of modern combustor systems for the transportation, power-generation and other industrial applications.
