Thesis Topic/Title:
Numerical Investigation of Spray Phenomena


Society needs more efficient engines that produce less pollution, which requires the combustion to operate in regimes where flame stability is marginal. Because of the limitations of modern computers to simulate real combustion phenomena, models must be developed. The student will perform very accurate simulations of the evaporation and subsequent combustion of droplets in a combustion chamber. These simulations will be used to improve the physical understanding of the behaviour of these systems and also to develop models which can be used in full-scale simulations.
