The main objective of ESTiMatE is to develop a modelling strategy using CFD simulations for the prediction of soot in terms of chemical evolution and particle formation in conditions relevant to aero engine operation. The model developments are based on the use of detailed chemical kinetics for kerosene surrogates, and advanced combustion and spray models validated with...

The most significant challenge in applied fluid dynamics (covering aerospace, energy and propulsion, automotive, maritime industries, chemical process industries) is posed by a lack of understanding of turbulence-dependent features and laminarto--turbulent transition. As a consequence, the design and analysis of industrial equipment cannot be relied upon to be accurate in...
