TOTeM30 is offered by the American Flame Research Committee (AFRC) under the auspices of the IFRF and will address the topic: CFD – Simulation of Combustion Processes.

TOTeM 30 takes place immediately after the American/Japanese Committees’ 2007 International Symposium entitled “Advances in Combustion Technology: Improving the Environment and Energy Efficiency” (http://www.calendar.ifrf.net/event.html?id=232) to be held at the same venue on October 22-24, 2007.  (For those also attending the TOTeM, the deadline for submitting abstracts to the American/Japanese symposium has been extended to April 30, 2007.)

Through a combination of invited talks and poster sessions, TOTeM30 will develop the background to the simulation of combustion processes through CFD.  Recent advances in CFD simulation technologies will be highlighted, along with their applications in understanding combustion processes in a wide range of industries.  Delegates will also have the opportunity to determine the needs for further development during a full morning workshop session. 

TOTeM30 will focus on the following key topics:

• CFD in Combustion and Flames: an IFRF perspective
• Combustion and Flame Simulation: current status and the latest developments in CFD
• Development and Application of Large Eddy Simulations (LES)
• CFD in Industrial Combustion Processes: its applications and development needs
• Advancement in Simulating Turbulence-Combustion Interactions
• CFD Simulation of Fluid Structure Interactions (FSI) in Combustion Equipment
• Progress in Simulating Emissions from Combustion Processes
• CFD Applications in Liquid Fuel Simulation

The workshop is open to all delegates.  Building on the momentum created by the invited talks and poster sessions of the previous day, it will provide a forum to discuss the state of CFD and its relevance to industrial combustion processes, and to identify the needs for further research and development.
