The 10th edition of the International Seminar on Flame Structure will be held in Orléans, France from 24 to 29 May 2020. The previous editions were, for the most part, organized by the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Science in Novosibirsk, all three years since 1983. Two editions were also held in Europe: In Brussels in 2008 and Berlin in 2014.
The Seminar aims to provide an international forum bringing together research organizations and industry to discuss the experimental, theoretical and numerical progress made in studying the flame structure of both gaseous and condensed systems, the limits of flammability and aspects related to fire safety. Allowing actors from the world of research and industry of the field of combustion to meet as well as the confrontation of the methodologies employed is likely to favor collaborations and innovation.
These days will bring together specialists from different fields and student researchers or recent graduates. The choice of presentations at the conference will reflect a broad range of applications. The Seminar also aims to strengthen international cooperation in the field of combustion.
Topics covered during the Seminar are:
- Premixed flames
- Diffusion flames
- Laminar flames
- Turbulent flames
- Flame of energetic materials
- Experimental methods for the study of flame structure
- Numerical methods for the study of flame structure,
- Chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms
- Inhibition and suppression of flames
- Soot formation and nanoparticles in flames
- Flames of solid
This interdisciplinary conference will include special sessions on:
- New experimental techniques and recent improvements;
- Improvements in models and data analysis to interpret complex reactions;
- The development of numerical methods in chemical kinetics, in particular the development of large kinetic models; and
- A round table on how the community should document / archive experimental data.
