1st ERCOFTAC Conference on Simulation of Multiphase Flows in Gasification and Combustion, September 18-21, 2011, Germany

Germany, September 18-21, 2011

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



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
