Understanding combustion at fine scales
Interview with Humboldt fellow Dr. Xu Wen (Zhejiang University)
Dr. Xu Wen is a Humboldt Research Awardee from the Zhejiang University (China). His research focuses on solid fuel and gas phase combustion simulation, flamelet modeling and High-Performance Computing. He is hosted by Professor Christian Hasse at the Institute for Simulation of reactive Thermo-Fluid Systems.
New Research Unit for highly efficient combustion
Further optimization of modern spark-ignition (SI) combustion concepts based on systematic analysis of cyclic variations
The overarching goal of the new DFG Research Unit 2687 "Cyclic variations in highly optimized spark-ignition engines: experiment and simulation of a multi-scale causal chain" is to provide the foundations for a further optimization of modern spark-ignition (SI) combustion concepts. This will be achieved based on systematic analysis of cyclic variations and could lead to considerable improvements of efficiency and the reduction of pollutant emissions.
Mesoporous membranes big in “small”
A publication on functionalized mesopores by professor Annette Andrieu-Brunsen and co-workers has been featured on the inside cover of the journal "small".
Short Course on Atomization and Sprays 2020
17 – 20 February 2020, Technische Universität Darmstadt
A sixth edition of the Short Course on Atomization and Sprays will be held from 17-20 February 2020 at the TU Darmstadt. The course presents the current understanding and state-of-the-art of atomization fundamentals, their realization in atomizer systems and their application in a wide variety of engineering branches.
