Our results contribute to the development of efficient, low-emission energy converters or to reduce deposits in energy technology or chemical engineering, for example.
When walls and chemistry interact
The behavior of chemical reactions is exceptionally influenced by walls. This is important for various technologically and scientifically significant processes, such as the formation of pollutants in combustion systems, the formation of depositions interfering chemical processes in energy- and process technology or catalytic effects in general. Processes near walls are tremendously affecting new technological concepts, such as the design and development of new combustion engines, after-treatment of exhaust gases, gas turbines, power plants as well as process engineering. Despite their high importance, the underlying mechanisms as well as their mutual interaction are poorly understood.
These various scientific topics give rise to the overall objectives of the TRR 150, represented by the following three main research areas:
Video: TRR 150 in 3 minutes
In this video, TRR 150 spokesperson Prof. Dr. Andreas Dreizler summarizes the motivation and research questions of the Collaborative Research Center. The interaction of chemical reactions with transport processes (turbulence and diffusion) in the presence of a wall is being investigated. The aim is to gain a better understanding of the processes and, based on this, to develop mathematical models. These will then be integrated into overall models to demonstrate this predictive capability using appropriate systemic considerations.

B: Model developement and simulation
We develop and validate sub-models and high-resolution numerical simulations using experimental insights and data from A. The focus is on individual processes for future electrofuels as well as higher near-wall pressures and temperatures. From this, overall models for the interaction of chemical reactions, turbulent flow, multiphase processes and wall heat transfer are being developed.

First Datathon on research data management
Joint event of CRCs 1194 and TRR 150 with the Clean Circles project
On 8 February 2023, the first Datathon of CRC 1194 and CRC Transregio 150 and the Clean Circles cluster project took place. The topic was how research data management according to the FAIR principles looks like in practice and how it can be implemented.
Close exchange between experimental and modelling efforts engine flows
Summary of 11th Darmstadt Engine Workshop on 21 October 2022
The 11th Darmstadt Engine Workshop (DEW 11) took place on 21 October 2022. In the spirit of the last Darmstadt engine workshops we continued to facilitate a closecollaboration and information exchange between the experimental and modelling efforts forIC engine flows and combustion.
