International Combustion Institute Summer School

International Combustion Institute Summer School on Near-Wall Reactive Flows

6th – 10th June 2016, Bensheim, Germany

Summer School - The application is closed.

Preliminary Timetable


Course Description and Aims

Advances in various engineering and process applications necessitate better understanding of underlying surface processes or near-wall phenomena in concerning systems. High-temperature material synthesis and processing, engine heat transfer and combustion, and chemical process technology (chemical vapor deposition and infiltration, catalytic processes, etc.) are just a few familiar examples. Thereby processes, such as surface reconstruction, surface material damage, material deposition, film growth and material etching, wall-flame interaction, surface reactions and their coupling with chemically reactive flows, have to be addressed.

The course objective is to provide the participants with today’s detailed knowledge on

  • Turbulence-Chemistry Interaction
  • Chemical Kinetics under low temperature conditions
  • Near-Wall Reactive Flow Diagnostics
  • Heat-Transfer and Turbulent Multiphase-Flows
  • Near-Wall Reactive Flow Applications

The ICISS-Summer School in cooperation with TU Darmstadt is intended to report on the status and perspective of experimental, theoretical, and numerical techniques for understanding, describing, and designing near-wall reactive flows in diverse scientific and engineering fields. It aims furthermore at providing an opportunity for researchers and interested workers to present the state of the art, discuss new challenges and developments, and exchange ideas in the areas of near-wall reactive flows.

Who should attend?

The course is directed towards international graduate students and researchers of mechanical or process engineering, chemistry and physics focusing on the fields of combustion, energy science, turbulent or multiphase flow, fluid mechanics, kinetics, laser diagnostics, thermodynamics or heat transfer.

Summer School site

The summer school is going to take place in the Alleehotel Europa in Bensheim, Germany., Europa-Allee 45, 64625 Bensheim Germany

Fees and Registration

The Summer School as well as accommodation, field trips, social events and meals will be free of charge. The costs for traveling are not covered by the summer school.
