KIT Short Term Course on

Multiphase Flows, Atomization, and Spray Combustion

February 21 - 23, 2020

Objectives

This short course has the aim to present the current understanding and state-of- the-art of multiphase flows, atomization fundamentals, their realization in atomizer systems and their application in a wide variety of engineering branches, including spray drying, combustion, spray coating, fuel injection, etc.

Two important reasons for such a short course is: firstly, the course is an attempt to shed some light on the recent advancements in the field of multiphase reacting systems, which could be useful to the attendees in his/her research. Secondly, there is boom in the auto/aircraft market in developing nations like India. The industries in this competitive market are investing large amount of time and effort to device new mechanisms which are viable, efficient and have reduced- emissions. This short course would be helpful to get better insight of criticalprocesses from spray break-up to various important species like NOx, which may minimize the effort and time to study those specific phenomena during spray combustion, consequently, reducing the number of experiments. The course foresees intensive discussions between the participants and the lecturers and also among the participants.

Scope

This course will enable engineers and researchers with knowledge of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to move to an integrated understanding of fundamental aspects of multiphase systems, especially in the field of multi-phase combustion. It will present primarily the fundamental aspects and recent progress in the fields of multiphase flows, atomization and spray combustion, while establishing important connections with the underlying fluid-mechanics and thermodynamics. Further, it will present and explore multiple examples of multiphase systems in real life applications.

  • To provide a pedagogical underpinning of multiphase flows and sprays both from fundamental as well as applied aspects.
  • Introduction to basic concepts of multiphase systems, atomization and sprays.
  • asic elements of the single droplet combustion, heat transfer, evaporation.
  • dvanced concepts spray characterization, combustion including modeling and measurement techniques.
