Organization profile

Introduction / mission

"The energy transition requires the development of clean and efficient conversion devices for alternative carbon-free fuels and energy carriers. Numerical models play a major role in the design process of such devices."

Organisational profile

Group van Oijen is specialized in theoretical and numerical modelling of combustion.

The expertise is largely in the field of engines and energy converters and is focused on mechanical engineering, chemically reacting flows, modelling combustion and interfacial transport phenomena in engineering flows. The group employs highly fidelity numerical models to unravel the fundamental processes in reacting flows and uses this knowledge to develop computationally efficient models for large-scale simulations of real devices. The leader of this group (Jeroen van Oijen) is the inventor of the well-known Flamelet-Generated Manifold (FGM) method, which enables the use of detailed reaction mechanisms in engineering simulations at affordable computational cost. Group van Oijen aims to develop new models for the design of devices employing new combustion concepts and future sustainable fuels.
