SOTUF : SOot in TUrbulent Flames

June 2018 - June 2023

The SOTUF project is dedicated to the study of soot production in turbulent flames combining advanced space- and time-resolved optical diagnostics and  high-fidelity numerical simulations. The goal of the present project is to provide new insights on the processes governing soot production in turbulent flames to develop novel Large Eddy Simulation (LES) models, encompassing the state-of-art and allowing reliable predictions of soot in turbulent flames.
