"Towards High-Efficiency Low-Emission Combustion Design:  Multimodal Combustion and Soot Emissions"

Tuesday, February 21 @ 1:30 p.m.
Montgomery Knight Room 317


Transportation, power generation, and electricity generation depend heavily on the combustion of fossil and synthetic fuels.  The next generation of combustion systems will need to be more efficient with lower emissions than the current.  In this talk, I will discuss the coupling effects of two crucial components of combustion, chemical kinetics and fluid dynamics, on flame dynamics and soot emissions, and the physical insights for future combustion design.  Specifically, I will discuss 1) multimodal combustion that consists of both deflagration and autoignition under elevated temperatures and pressures and 2) soot evolution in turbulent reacting flows that represent the recirculating patterns in gas turbines.  I will conclude with future research directions that combine combustion and material sciences to develop new technologies for energy sustainability.

About Dr. Seng

Dr. Sili Deng is a postdoctoral scholar in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University.  She received her bachelor’s degree in Thermal Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2010 and her master’s and doctoral degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University in 2012 and 2016, respectively.  Dr. Deng received the Princeton Energy and Climate Scholarship in 2013 and the Gordon Wu Prize for Excellence in 2014, both from Princeton University.  She was the only recipient from Princeton’s Engineering School of the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2014 and one of the five recipients of the Bernard Lewis Fellowship at the biennial International Symposium on Combustion in 2016.
