      IFRF Workshop at the 11th European Combustion Meeting

From lab scale to industrial combustion: challenges for the scale up of experimental and simulation approaches

The IFRF will be hosting a workshop before the 11th European Combustion Meeting (ECM), which is being organised by the French Section of the Combustion Institute and will take place on April 26th-28th 2023 in Rouen, France. The IFRF workshop will take place at the same location 25th April 2023, one day before the ECM.

  • What parameter do we need to measure in order to characterise industrial combustion systems?
  • How to validate numerical modelling of industrial combustion systems?
  • What issues when adapting lab-scale measurements techniques to semi-industrial facilities or to industrial plants?
  • Industrial sectors: steel, glass, cement, power production, biomass, wastes…
