News from OpenSMOKE++

PhD Position available!

The CRECK Modeling Lab is looking for candidates for a PhD position for a research project in collaboration with Department of Energy on hydrogen combustion ūüĒ•. The project aims at developing and optimizing new burners fed with hydrogen to enhance efficiency, ensure safety, and minimize pollutant emissions.

OptiSMOKE++: a toolbox for optimization of kinetic mechanisms

OpenSMOKE++ was used in OptiSMOKE++, a flexible toolbox for the optimization of chemical kinetics. The toolbox is the resultof a collaboration between the CRECK Modeling Lab at Politecnico di Milano and the Universit√© Libre de Bruxelles. OptiSMOKE++ is described in a paper recently published on Computer Physics Communication with title: "OptiSMOKE++: A toolbox for optimization of chemical kinetic mechanisms".

New paper on fuel droplets burning in microgravity

OpenSMOKE++ was used for simulating the evaporation and combustion of isolated fuel droplets. The work is a collaboration between the CRECK Modeling Lab, Cornell University, University of San Diego California, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories. The main results have been published on Fuel in a paper with title: "Simulating combustion of a seven-component surrogate for a gasoline/ethanol blend including soot formation and comparison with experiments".


The OpenSMOKE++ tools are described in the following papers:
