About this project:
Soot is one of the most prevalent anthropogenic aerosols, affecting atmospheric visibility, global climate, and human health. Controlling soot formation in flames remains a challenge in combustion systems fueled using both conventional fossil fuels and sustainable biofuels. In this MCubed project, we will develop a robust approach to modeling soot formation and growth in a variety of conditions relevant to combustion and atmospheric systems. The novel aspect of this project is to develop a modeling approach that can span the vast range of conditions and characteristic physics from internal combustion engines to the ambient urban environment.
