From / To  : December 2011 - December 2014

Research topics  :

  • Thermochemistry analysis of nitrous oxide reduction process (DeNOx).
  • Optimization procedures for building DeNOx reduced chemical schemes. Collaboration with Chalmers University, Sweden.
  • Development of high performances numerical tools for reactive and multiphase flows: Introduction of multi- component spray evaporation in the flow solver YALES2 (unstructured low-Mach) and SiTComB (structured fully compressible).
  • Simulations of an industrial system at several operating points.
  • Optimization of the industrial incinerator DeNOx process with numerical simulations.
  • Development of a low order stochastic model of the incinerator for process control.
