报告题目：Development and validation of OpenFOAM for safety related reactive flows
报告人：英国萨里大学 Jennifer Wen教授
The presentation will start with an overview of the systematic approach my team has followed since 2008 to develop, validate and apply the in-house modified versions of OpenFOAM for safety related reactive flows. Our effort has a particular focus on the development of physics-based sub-models to advance the modelling capabilities. For applications related to fire, explosions and/or deflagration to detonation transition (DDT), our activities have spanned across conventional gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels to syngas, hydrogen, and lithium-ion batteries. The physical scales of our simulations range from millimeter to hundred meters. As such, we use detailed physics-based models within the context of LES and DNS as well as some simplified approaches depending on the scope of the projects and aspiration of the researchers. For model validation, we use a wide range of experimental data from the literature as well as collaborators in both academia and industry.
Jennifer Wen is currently a Professor in Energy Resilience at University of Surrey, where she established and leads the Fire and Explosion Modelling Group (FMEG). She also leads the Energy and Environment Programme at the pan-university Institute for Sustainability. Jennifer has been working on fire modelling since 1995, focusing on model development and validation. Her research has been applied to a wide range of fire scenarios. She is currently an Associate Editor for the Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, Vice Chair of IAFSS for Research. She serves as a member and Task Force Leader of the European Safety Panel on Hydrogen Safety (EHSP) for the Clean Hydrogen Partnership of the European Commission.
