Announcing the 5th session of the Princeton-CEFRC Summer School on Combustion

Friday, Feb 7, 2014

The Combustion Energy Frontier Research Center (CEFRC) has conducted a Summer School on Combustion since 2010. This Summer School is a week-long program intended for advanced graduate students and senior researchers in the field of combustion science. The educational and networking experience has been greatly appreciated by those who attended in the past sessions.

We are now pleased to announce the offering of  our fifth session, scheduled for June 22-27, 2014. This year we are again offering the two foundation courses on combustion theory and combustion chemistry, which are respectively entitled: “Combustion Theory and Applications in CFD”, to be taught by Professor Heinz Pitsch of the RWTH Aachen University, and “Combustion and Fuels Chemistry”, to be taught by Professor William H. Green of MIT. We are in addition offering three new courses, namely: “Reciprocating Engines”, “Unsteady Combustor Processes”, and “New Developments in Combustion Technology”, which will be respectively taught by Professor Rolf D. Reitz of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Professor Timothy C. Lieuwen of Georgia Tech, and Dr. Geo Richards of NETL, DOE.

As with previous years, lodging and meals for students of U.S. academic institutions is covered by the Center. Additional information and application materials are given in the webpage: The deadline for application is Friday, March 14th.
