TNF9 Workshop

Montreal, Canada, July 31 – August 2, 2008

TNF9 was attended by 82 researchers from 13 countries. Thirty-nine posters were contributed, with abstracts included in the proceedings. The agenda emphasized three challenges facing the turbulent combustion research community:

  • Development and validation of modeling approaches which are accurate over a broad range of combustion modes and regimes (nonpremixed, partially premixed, stratified, and premixed).
  • Extension of quantitative validation work to include more complex fuels (beyond CH4) and fuel mixtures that are of practical interest.
  • Establishment of a more complete framework for verification and validation of combustion LES, including quality assessment of calculations, as well as development and utilization of approaches which extract knowledge and understanding from comparisons of detailed experimental measurements with detailed simulations.

The complete TNF9 Proceedings (300 pages, 62 MB) are available for download in PDF format. The PDF file includes materials from the proceedings notebook that was distributed to workshop participants in Montreal, as well as additional materials (such as presentation slides) contributed after the workshop. The summary from the proceedings is also available separately.
