NUMECA International and the Technical University of Darmstadt jointly organize an International Workshop on Advanced Measurement Techniques and Computational Methods for Premixed and Partially Premixed Combustion. The workshop is organized in the framework of the Marie Curie COMBINA project and is financially supported by the
European Commission (FP7). The Workshop is organized in conjunction with the Seventh Mediterranean Combustion Symposium (MCS-7).



Aim of the workshop


The workshop aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and engineers to present the state-of-the-art in experimental methods and numerical modelling techniques, assess model performance and their uncertainties, and discuss new challenges and developments. Comparisons of state-of-the-art models on three different, representative test cases will be an essential part of the workshop. Invited lectures will be held by leading researchers and will provide a perspective of the experimental and numerical techniques as well as
phenomena encountered in premixed and partially premixed, turbulent combustion processes.


Venue & Date:


The workshop will take place in the Chia Laguna Resort, Domus de Maria, Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy on Saturday and Sunday, 10-11 September 2011



Scope of the workshop:


• Presentation of experimental and numerical results of the following test
cases (TC):

o TC 1: Premixed TECFLAM burner

o TC 2: TU Darmstadt’s stratified burner

o TC 3: DLR Stuttgart’s premixed model combustor

• New experimental techniques, as well as evaluation of accuracy and

uncertainties of advanced experimental methods for premixed and partially
premixed combustion
• Assessment of reliability and domain of application of numerical and
physical models for premixed and partially premixed combustion



Invited speakers:


  • Prof. W. Jones (Imperial College, UK) will give a key note lecture on advanced combustion modelling methods
  • Dr. R. Barlow (Sandia National Laboratories, USA) will give a keynote lecture on advanced and innovative experimental techniques for combustion
  • Dr. W. Krebs (Siemens PG, Germany) will give a presentation on current and future industrial requirements for the design and analysis of combustors


Call for participation


Scientists, engineers and professionals from the combustion research
community or combustor manufacturing industry are encouraged to
participate in this workshop


Presentations are solicited on
• One or several of the aforementioned test cases
• Novel experiments or measurement techniques and/or on advanced modeling methods
