Safety Relevant Ignition Processes

International Workshop

International Workshop FOR1447

The international workshop on "Physicochemical based Models for the Prediction of safety-relevant Ignition Processes" will be the concluding colloquium of the FOR 1447 where the progress and highlights of the work in the single projects will be evaluated against their initial vision. The presentations of the particular research groups will be enriched by invited talks from highly ranked academical participants.

The seminar will be organized in three half-day sessions on October 13th and 14th 2016 and will cover different subjects such as

• Physical and chemical models for ignition processes
• Autoignition mechanisms and kinetics
• Ignition by mechanical sparks
• Ignition by electrical discharges
• Ignition in turbulent flows using DNS
• Ignition by hot free jets
