Research interests

Nowadays we pay more and more attention to the pollutant generation at all burning processes therefore it is important that we can describe and predict these processes well and this way develop our equipments. We would like to be effective therefore spare simulation time as much as possible. Soot generation at natural gas combustion is a very complicated process which could be described in details, though when it comes to combining it with fluid dynamic simulations we would like to get a tool which provides results fast but also preserves accuracy. The simplification of the detailed kinetic scheme will be in the focus of my studies using some already available techniques as CRG, path analysis and PCA to determine the significance of the part reactions, sort out the essential ones. Meanwhile attention will be paid to reduce stiffness of the mechanism by considering quasy-steady-state species and partial equilibrium reactions. The core of my model will be the method of moments and the main goal is to apply it in unsteady, multidimensional simulations.
