1st ERCOFTAC Conference on Simulation of Multiphase Flows in Gasification and Combustion
This ERCOFTAC conference will bring together experts and scientists in the field of advanced modeling and simulation of multiphase flows in both combustion and gasification. Multiphase can stand for any combination of gas, liquid and solid matter. In addition to the continuously high interest in combustion in multi-phase flows (e.g. in engines, gas turbines or coal combustors for mobility and power generation), gasification has recently gained significant interest.
Date: September 18, 2011 - September 21, 2011

Organizer: Technical University Freiberg/ Virtuhcon
Application Areas: Automotive, Power Generation, General CFD
Special Fields: Turbulence Modeling, Turbulence - LES Methods, Combustion, Reactive Flows, Multiphase Flows, Flows with Particles, Multiphysics, Scientific Computing
Type of Event: Conference, International

Both combustion and gasification are multi-scale problems 
with subprocesses such as complex gas-phase kinetics, 
highly turbulent flows, turbulence-chemistry interaction, 
evaporation and break-up of liquid fuels, heterogeneous 
reactions for solid fuels, dense particle systems etc.; 
differences are e.g. the global process fuel/air 
equivalence ratio and the final targeted products. Despite 
the significant overlap of the physical processes, there 
has been only little interaction between the research areas 
and only recently has gasification gained more interest in 
the combustion community.

A special issue of Flow, Turbulence and Combustion will be 
planned after discussion with the Editorial board of the 

Selected Topics:
- LES and (U)RANS calculations of multiphase flows 
- Heterogeneous reaction modelling for solid feedstock 
- Feedstock characterization 
- Mineral matter reactions (ash/slag) 
- Calculation of complex thermodynamic equilibria for multi-
  phase systems 
- Gas-phase chemistry for complex fuels and primary 
  reference fuels 
- Reduced chemical mechanisms for application in CFD 
- Modelling of spray break-up, (multi-component) 
  evaporation and spray flames 
- Dense particle systems
