3rd International Workshop on Flame Chemistry will be held on July 30-31,
2016 at Prima Hotel, 536 Dosan-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea.
The goal of this workshop is to assemble
experts in combustion chemistry, flames, kinetic modeling, engines, and
diagnostics to identify the gap of knowledge and pathways for the
development of predictive high pressure and low temperature flame chemistry
and to establish framework of collaborative research.
With increasing concerns of energy security and climate
change, development of alternative fuels and advanced engine technologies
using high pressure, low temperature, thermal and compositional stratified
flow, homogeneous charge compression ignition, cool flames, flameless
combustion, pressure gain combustion, supercritical combustion, and plasma
assisted combustion at near flammability limit and even non-equilibrium
conditions provide potential approaches to increasing energy conversion
efficiency and reducing air pollutant emissions. For a foreseeable future,
combustion with renewable fuels will remain as a major energy conversion
methodology for even a more extended period than previously forecast. New
combustion technologies at extreme conditions often lead to new flame
regimes, increased flame instability, incomplete combustion, and strong
chemistry and transport couplings. Biofuels will significantly change the
engine and emission performance. As such, it is of great importance to
advance fundamental understanding of ignition and flame chemistry at
extreme conditions to enable new fuels and to achieve accurate control of
ignition, heat release rate, combustion instability, and flame flashback,
The workshop will address the
following challenges in flame chemistry,
are the new findings and the major knowledge gaps in understanding ignition
and flame chemistry at extreme conditions?
to formulate theoretical and experimental strategies to narrow the
knowledge gap and to develop better predictive kinetic models?
are the major differences in chemistry between homogeneous ignition,
laminar and turbulent flames, and engines?
does low temperature chemistry affect ignition and combustion in high
pressure HCCI, PPCI, RCCI, and gas turbine engines?
can we quantify the fidelity of high pressure flame chemistry and transport
can we extract constraining information for model construction from macro
measure ignition delay time, flame speeds, and extinction limits?
diagnostics can we apply to high pressure systems?
does turbulence and chemistry interact in high pressure and Reynolds flows?
this workshop formulate collaborative relationship in research and
this workshop make some focused recommendations of the grand challenge
topics in chemistry to combustion research community?
Flame Chemistry Workshop is a satellite meeting that should complement the
Combustion Symposium Program of the Combustion Institute and avoid
conflicts. Accordingly, our policy is that materials presented at the
workshop should not duplicate information in formal Symposium papers and
oral presentations, although some results may be used in common.
The Workshop Program
includes four invited lecture sessions, one poster session, and two
panel discussion sessions.
The Workshop Proceedings will be made available at this website, and
will include presentation slides, a summary of the major discussion topics,
research topic recommendation, and directions for collaborative research.
