International Combustion Institute Summer School

International Combustion Institute Summer School (ICISS) on Near-Wall Reactive Flows

From 6/6-6/10/2016 the International Combustion Institute Summer School on Near-Wall Reactive Flows was hosted by the CRC/Transregio 150 in Bensheim, Germany. 96 international PhD-students from 23 nations attended the school. In total, 14 scientific lectures were given by speakers from ten different institutions, with topics clustered in

  • 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 (Industrial Talks)

Within three poster sessions, 64 students took the opportunity to present their scientific work. The school included a guided tour through the heat transfer and combustion labs of the TU Darmstadt. During a joint barbecue dinner, the frequent coffee breaks and the overall open atmosphere the students had the oppor-tunity to get into closer contact with the lecturers and other students.
