The overarching aim of our research is to understand the formation of combustion-generated pollutants in aero-engines and energy devices fueled by biomass. The objective is to provide a phenomenological description of the combustion process in multiphase reacting flows, primarily to elucidate NO and soot formations. The secondary objective is to provide a benchmark database to facilitate the validations of turbulence-chemistry models. Eventually, our work will facilitate the development of low-emission combustion devices.
