Seminar "On Dual Fuel Combustion in IC Engines"

Event date:  Friday, April 28, 2017, 14.30h

Location: School of Mechanical Engineering (NTUA), Seminar Room (1st floor) - Building 'O'


We invite you to the seminar "On Dual Fuel Combustion in IC Engines" that is organized by the Scool of Mechanical Engineering at NTUA in the frame of the Marie Curie ITN ECCO-MATE. In this talk, Prof. K. Boulouchos of the Aerothermochemistry and Combustion Systems Laboratory at ETH Zurich  will present the topic of dual fuel combustion in internal combustion engines. You may download the seminar invitation here.

The lecture was attended by approx. 30 under-graduate and post-graduate students and scientific members of the School of Mechanical Engineering.

PhD and PostDOC positions available within the ERC Starting Grant project VADEMECOM

The overall objective of VADEMECOM is to drive the development of modern and efficient combustion technologies, by means of experimental, theoretical, and numerical simulation approaches. New-generation simulation tools for MILD combustion will be developed, to reduce the dependence on sub-grid models and increase the fidelity of numerical simulations. High-fidelity experimental data will be collected on quasi-industrial systems, to disclose the nature of the interactions between fluid dynamics, chemistry and pollutant formation processes in MILD combustion. Experiment and numerical simulations will be tied together by Validation and Uncertainty Quantification techniques, to allow the ground-breaking application of the developed approaches and promote innovation in the energy sector.

We seek candidates (PhD and PostDoc) with a strong background in the following fields:

- Chemical kinetics. Expertise in reduction methods for chemical kinetics is required. Experience in methodologies for sensitivity analysis, validation and uncertainty quantification of kinetic mechanisms  constitutes an asset;

- Turbulence chemistry interactions & combustion modelling. Exertise in Large Eddy Simulation is required. Experience in model reduction represents an asset.
