Welcome at the chair NTFD
The research focus of the professorship numerical thermo fluid dynamics is the numerical simulation of high-temperature conversion processes using sophisticated models combined with 3D CFD. The group is responsible for the integrated process simulation and virtualisation within the framework of the Virtuhcon centre (www.virtuhcon.de). The integration in the department of Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering (IEC) as well as the close collaboration with 7 additional departments (INEMET, IEST, IFI, IMFD, INMO, IWTT, IWW) at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg provides an excellent environment and availability of experimental data for model validation.
The new models are used in Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations of gasification and combustion processes.
The research focus is on:

Lectures Introduction to Asymptotic Analysis of Reactive Flows scheduled
In the week June 17th to 21st 2013 the chair of numerical thermo-fluiddynamics will host a lecture series with the title Introduction to Asymptotic Analyses of Reactive Flows. Guest lecturer is Professor K. Seshadri (University of California San Diego). He has nearly 40 years experience in this particular field and is author of numerous publications concerned with asymptotic analysis
Paper on modeling bicomponent droplet evaporation accepted for Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer
The paper "The influence of non-ideal vapor-liquid equilibrium on the evaporation of ethanol/iso-octane droplets" by A. Bader, P. Keller, C. Hasse was accepted for publication in the Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer .
NTFD joined COST Action CM0901
Since 24.04.2013, the chair NTFD is a member of the COST Action CM0901: Detailed chemical kinetic models for cleaner combustion. The aim of this European research cooperation is the development and implementation of improved chemical combustion models.
The overall project is divided into 5 working groups, whereas the NTFD will participate in working group 3: "PAHs and Soot".
