The use case includes the study of primary and secondary breakup, and the influence of heat conduction and droplet heating on the evaporation rates prior combustion takes place. The final objective will be the study of reacting sprays at relevant engine conditions.
The application of plasma in combustion simulations provides an unprecedented opportunity for combustion and emission control. This use case is focused on the study of plasma-assisted combustion by Nanosecond Repetitively Pulsed (NRP) discharges in order to control the formation of combustion instabilities and pollutant formation.
The use cases focuses on the study of thermo-diffusive instabilities in turbulent lean hydrogen flames and its effects on burning velocities, unstable combustion and noise.
This use case is aiming at optimizing burner performance in terms of pollutant emissions, making use of large-scale simulations.
The goal of this use case is to demonstrate the predictive capabilities of Exascale simulations to provide accurate results of soot formation when applied to large-scale simulations.
The 2020 edition of the ETP4HPC Handbook of HPC projects is available, including – besides many other intiatives – introductions to all the 14 CoEs and FocusCoE.
Do you want to make a difference and contribute to combustion research that could transform Europe´s power and transportation sectors? CoEC is looking for PhD students and postdocs.
The European Union is committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. To reach this goal, there is a need for coordinated research and innovation efforts to make low and zero-carbon solutions economically viable. The recently launched Center of Excellence in Combustion (CoEC) addresses this challenge using advanced modelling and simulation technologies to study the combustion of sustainable fuels and new combustion technologies in order to transform Europe´s power and transportation sectors.
