From July 27th to 28th, 2019, the 2nd International Workshop on Near-Limit Flames was successfully held at Peking University. More than 100 well-known experts, scholars and graduate students from 15 countries including China, the United States, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and Canada gathered together to discuss the research frontiers and development trends of the near-limit flame.
At the beginning of the workshop, Prof. Zheng Chen from the College of Engineering at Peking University, chairman of the workshop, expressed warm welcome to the guests present and introduced the main theme and organization of the seminar.
"This workshop aims to discuss the latest research progress and challenges of near-limit flames, and to promote participants to conduct collaborative research on the theoretical, computational and experimental research of near-limit flames,” Cheng said.
Prof. Zheng Chen presided over the meeting and delivered a speech
The workshop invites many well-known experts and scholars in the field of combustion to discuss the near-extreme combustion frontier issues. The seminar included four themes in the field of extreme combustion. There were 24 invitation reports covering low temperature combustion, cold flame, flameless combustion, supercritical combustion, high pressure and high Reynolds number combustion, ignition assisted combustion, pressure gain combustion, Knock, oxyfuel combustion, micro-combustion and plasma-assisted combustion.
After all the reports were completed, the participants had a two-hour free discussion on the four topics covered in the seminar.
