Abstract:

The subject of aerothermodynamics is playing an ever increasingly critical role in a variety of important industrial and technical problems in the design of combustors. In recent years, it has become the focus of attention among investigations from research laboratories and industries around the world resulting in a large number of meetings on its various aspects every year. However, most of these meetings deal with a certain problem area, for instance that of the global combustion of fuel droplets in a flow. Because of the inherent complexities involved in such flows, the analytical effort has been mostly confined to over-simplified and over-idealized flow systems while the experimental effort has been mostly directed towards global measurements of flows found in industrial applications. With the rapid and phenomenal developments of key research tools mostly in the last two decades, in particular those of modern digital computers, laser optics, and electronics, many of the previously unthinkable, rigorous investigations in real-life flows have gradually become feasible. It is against this background that this international conference on the aerothermodynamics in combustors is being held at this point in time. This symposium involves the presentation of papers concerned with Flow and Thermodynamic Characteristics of Combustors, with emphasis on gas-turbine combustors and including information relevant to rocket motors, internal combustion engines and furnaces. It is expected to involve descriptions of experimental and numerical work which has been performed to aid understanding of physical processes including chemical kinetics, turbulent mixing, droplet dispersion, coalescence and evaporation, scalar transport, premixed and non- premixed combustion and radiation.
