Flameless Oxidation & Hydrogen-in-Mix for Power & Heat Generation

3DEC (Deakin Digital Design and Engineering Centre)

Thursday, December 31, 2020 Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Improving thermal efficiency, reducing GHG & hazardous emissions, and increasing materials durability in industrial kilns, calciners, furnaces and gas turbines (GT) are critical requirements for sustainability of the transport, power generation, and process sectors. There is an inherent, yet complex, inter-dependency between the requirements for thermal efficiency, durability, and emissions, making it scientifically and technologically a challenging endeavour. Achieving these requirements necessitate a fundamental understanding of the physics of flow, chemistry, multiphase flow dynamics, and thermal radiation phenomena. A deeper understanding of the complex reactive and radiative physics of hydrogen-in-mix burners for industrial applications is particularly challenging. This project will be utilising advanced CFD modelling tools to predict the flow, temperature, species, radiation, and emission characteristics of industrial power and heat systems. More specifically, the focus will be on utilising numerical models for investigating and designing hydrogen-in-mix burners for high-temperature processes (HTP), and flameless oxidation systems for GT engines. This project will involve both fundamental and applied research - first, to gain an understanding of the Physico-chemical mechanisms involved in the integration of hydrogen into existing industrial burners, and into flameless oxidation processes. Second, to apply this knowledge in the design of practical burners for HTP systems and GT engines.

This is an exciting challenge that suits an ambitious, curiosity-driven researcher that is seeking to work at the leading edge of energy technology.
