Research topics

  • General direction: Environmentally friendly combustion, heat transfer, energy conversion methods, Carbon-free fuels and energy-storage are the main research areas. Experimental work includes applications of laser-based measurement techniques for furnace operation, fuels characterization and development of new combustion technologies. The theoretical developments are concerned with fluid flow simulations using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), combustion chemistry and heat transfer (thermal radiation). The research is related to problems or improvements for the energy-producing industry, the steel-making, glass-making and cement-making industries.
  • Mathematical models based on CFD: The task is to develop models for predicting turbulent flows with chemical reactions. The models are used in numerous industries (see above).
  • Generation of data for validation of the mathematical models: Experiments using laser-based and conventional measurement techniques are performed in order to verify the developed mathematical models.
  • MILD combustion: Moderate and Intense Low-oxygen Dilution (MILD) combustion is a new, revolutionary combustion technology that reduces both fuel consumption and pollutants emissions. Both experimental and theoretical activities have been going on.
