Joint meeting of the British and Scandinavian-Nordic Sections of the Combustion Institute

– The 7th Biennial Meeting for the Scandinavian-Nordic Section

March 27-28, 2014

Cambridge, UK

Two days meeting was held successfully in Robinson College, Cambridge. Various aspects of combustion science and technology were discussed by scientists and engineers from fundamental physical and chemical processes to applications, including chemical kinetics, laminar and turbulent flames, combustion diagnostics, coal and biomass combustion, spray and droplet combustion, fires, detonations and explosions, materials synthesis, engine combustion and energy systems. 


Invited speakers:

Dr Svetlana Starikovskaya, École Polytechnique, France.

Combustion kinetics and plasma kinetics: how to link these Worlds?

Prof. Dr. Ing. Heinz Pitsch, RWTH Aachen University, Germany.

Multi-Scale Model Development for LES Using DNS Data

Seventeenth International Conference on Numerical Combustion

May 6-8, 2019 Aachen, Germany

Current advances in numerical combustion continue to have a great impact on combustion science. These advances allow to address engineering problems with increasing complexity in a wide range of applications such as propulsion and transportation, power generation, environment, waste disposal, safety (fires, explosions), or material synthesis. At the forthcoming Seventeenth International Conference on Numerical Combustion, ongoing research and current advances in the field of numerical combustion will be presented. These include the integration of theory, modeling and numerical implementation to perform high-fidelity simulations of fundamental combustion physics and technological applications. The goal of the conference is to be a premier venue for researchers and industry practitioners to share new ideas, research results, and development experiences in these fields.
