Institute of Physics Combustion Group - Spring Meeting: Topics in Combustion Modelling

Institute of Physics Combustion Group - Spring Meeting
Topics in Combustion Modelling

10 June 2014
Fitzwilliam College Auditorium,

The Combustion Group of the Institute of Physics is happy to announce its one-day Spring Meeting, which will take place in Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, on 10 June 2014. The talks will cover various modern applications of combustion simulation, such as flames in gas turbines, multiphase flow problems in diesel engines, fires, and MILD combustion. The speakers will also discuss the needs for further research. Students, post-docs, academics and industry representatives are invited to attend.


Students: 40 GBP
Others: 80 GBP

Registration and payment at the Institute of Physics website is necessary. It will not be possible to register onsite. Please visit:
