|LES4ICE - LES for Internal Combustion Engine Flows|
|2nd announcement and final programme available! The LES4ICE workshop aims at providing a forum for exchanges concerning recent advances in research on and the use of Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) applied to internal combustion engine flows, injection and combustion. The aim is to bring together engine designers and players in LES research worldwide and have them compare views on the state of the art in LES applied to ICEs and on the bottlenecks future research will have to overcome.|
|Date:||December 1, 2008 - December 2, 2008|
|Location:||IFP, Rueil-Malmaison (8km west of Paris), France|
|Special Fields:||Turbulence - LES Methods, Combustion, Multiphase Flows, Numerical Methods, Measurement Techniques|
|Deadlines:||April 7, 2008 (abstract), November 14, 2008 (registration)|
|Type of Event:||Workshop, International|
Context & Objectives
LES opens up new prospects for the use of CFD in the piston engine design process. It can be expected to definitively improve the description of engine aerodynamics, because the steady growth of computing power will make it possible to resolve the essential part of the flow energy in LES, yielding increasingly reliable results. In the next 10 years, this opens up the prospect of using LES for numerical investigations of engine aerodynamics capable of yielding reliable quantitative results that could potentially further reduce development times and costs for new concepts.
But there are many open questions, ranging from basic modelling, through the appropriate numerical methods, to methodology and CPU time issues, that will have to be answered before LES can attain its full potential in ICE simulation and design. It is the goal of the LES4ICE conference to provide a unique opportunity to keep up with the relevant R&D.
How to propose a Contribution
Authors wishing to deliver presentations during the workshop are encouraged to submit proposals on the following or related topics:
Proposals for contributions should consist of a 1000-word abstract of the research work and be of sufficient quality and scope to allow their consistency with workshop objectives and the progress they report to be evaluated. They may also include one additional page with figures or tables to illustrate the main accomplishments.
The proposal abstract must comply with the following rules:>
Registration fees will cover conference participation, coffee breaks and lunches on both days, the conference reception on the evening of 1 December, a book of abstracts and a CD containing the presentations.
In order to receive all necessary information for registration and to be informed of the final programme mail request to Bettina.CARUSO@ifp.fr with "LES4ICE" as subject.
