Description :

The project aims to lead the development of new combustion technologies, using experimental, theoretical and simulation approache.
The project is focused on the MILD combustion, a highly fuel-efficient, highly fuel-efficient combustion method with almost zero
emissions, whose mechanisms are not yet fully understood.
Indeed, a strong coupling between the chemical and turbulent effects exists in this  combustion mode. This strong coupling
requires the development of new approaches for numerical simulation. The project aims to address this through a coupling of
high-fidelity optical measurements of experiments - using a high-frequency laser - and the development of new models based on principal
component analysis, representing a hybrid approach. between the existing complex chemistry and flamelet models.
