Announcements ERCOFTAC will host Best Practices in Combustion CFD, Flame Stabilization, & Combustion Instabilities at the Delft University of Technology, Delft, Netherlands on 3-4 November 2015.

The lectures of this course, all by well-known experts in the field, will range from combustion basics to applications with focus on model selection and validation, radiative heat transfer, gas turbines and flame stability.

Background and Objectives
Design and operation of modern combustion systems faces the need to combine high efficiency with low emissions and good flame stability. Computational Fluid Dynamics has become a powerful tool in design and analysis of a wide range of combustion systems (furnaces, gas turbines, engines, …). It describes the combination of turbulent flow, chemical reactions and radiative heat transfer, but it is not a unique modeling method. Many models are available, each having a range of applicability, computational cost and accuracy. Consequently, CFD experts doing turbulent combustion simulations, in addition to usual CFD skills, need insight and skills in combustion modeling in order to do the analysis correctly. The present course addresses this need.

In this course the participants will learn the best practices in CFD of combustion systems. They will learn how to select models, how to validate models, and which accuracy to expect. Flame stabilization and combustion instability caused by two-way coupling between acoustic waves and unsteady heat release, are critical issues in design of clean combustion systems and a major part of the course is devoted to them.

The course is held at the occasion of the publication of the ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guide on CFD of combustion, a copy of which will be provided to the participants.

In the course, the link will be made between 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.
