About us

Our vision and mission

Main interests of the research group include mathematical modeling, numerical methods and software development/application for simulation, analysis and optimization of flow, heat/mass transfer and chemical reactions in full-scale energy conversion systems.

Various fields of investigation are covered, such as:

  • turbulence and combustion modeling,
  • modeling of thermal radiation,
  • modeling of two-phase turbulent reactive flows,
  • CFD software development and application,
  • clean coal technologies,
  • renewable energy sources utilization, etc.

Currently, research activities focus on clean coal technologies with respect to the modeling of complex processes in full-scale utility boiler pulverized coal-fired furnaces, such as:

  • development of user-friendly software tools to support clean & efficient (co)combustion of solid fuels,
  • combustion modifications to reduce NOx emission,
  • furnace sorbent injection of pulverized limestone to mitigate SO2 emission,
  • direct cofiring of pulverized biomass with coal,
  • radiative heat transfer and the water walls ash deposits,
  • interphase exchanges in particle laden two-phase flows,
  • prediction of nucleate pool boiling,

in order to increase the combustion efficiency, mitigate the emissions and improve the flexibility of the steam boiler operation and optimize the flow and heat/mass transfer in different energy conversion systems.

We are planning to extended our research to the prediction/implementation of SNCR/SCR methods and combined primary/secondary de-NOx measures, investigation of turbulence-radiation interactions, modeling of premixed flames, etc.


The research staff consists mainly of profienced engineers skilled in research of processes involving combustion and heat exchage in turbulent two-phase flows.
