Mr. K. M. Mukut presents at the Spring Technical Meeting

Dated: May 21, 2018

Mr. Mukut presented his work titled "A Sensitivity Study on Soot and NOx Formation in High Pressure Combustion System" at the Spring Technical Meeting of the Central States Section of the Combustion Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This meeting was organized by University of Minnesota in collaboration with American Flame Research Committee.

Mr. Mukut's work showed significant effect of radiation on soot and NO formation in Spray-A and Spray-H cases of Engine Combustion Network (ECN).

External grant (NSF) awarded

Dated: Feb 9, 2018

A grant titled "Novel techniques for improving convergence and scalability of a Monte Carlo radiation solver for large-scale combustion simulations" has been awarded to Dr. Roy. The proposed research aims to develop portable, high-efficiency radiation solver suitable for massively-parallel combustion simulations in HPC environments. This grant is sponsored by Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure division of CISE directorate in NSF.

Internal grant awarded

Dated: Jan 9, 2018

An internal Regular Research Grant to study pollutant emission in internal combustion engine has been awarded to Dr. Roy for the calendar year 2018.

New publication in Combustion and Flame

Dated: Jan 9, 2018

A paper on impact of radiation in high-pressure spray simulation from a collaborative research involving Dr. Roy has been published in Combustion and Flame.
This work uses radiation models developed by Dr. Roy to explore effects of soot, radiation, turbulent-chemistry-interaction, and turbulent-radiation interaction modling in a high-pressure n-Dodecane spray (ECN - Spray A) combustion.
