Task 2.1: Combustion process simulation
The goal of this task is to develop and test new combustion technologies assisted by advanced combustion models in order to achive ultra low emission processes. A novel spray � combustion chamber will be designed. Advanced models for fuel spray and mixing, combustion and emissions will be developed. Validation tests for the new spray � combustion chamber will be performed, as well as, verification, via experimental data, for the combustion models developed.
