Aero-thermo-mechanics department - ULB (ATM)

Research interests • Turbulent/chemistry interactions in turbulent combustion and reduced-order combustion models. • Non-conventional fuels (H2-enriched fuels, syngas and biogas) and pollutant formation in combustion systems.

• Novel combustion technologies such as flameless and oxy-fuel.

• Numerical simulation of atmospheric boundary layer flows.

• Verification, validation and uncertainty quantification in computational fluid dynamics.

• Investigation/development of novel combustion technologies for the efficient valorisation of biomass generated fuels (biogas, syngas) and low-calorific value fuels from biomass conversion/degragation processes.

• Investigation/development of micro combined heat and power (CHP) units exploiting biomas derived fuels.
