Two papers by CRF researchers have been named distinguished papers for the 34th International Symposium on Combustion held from July 29–August 3, 2012, in Warsaw, Poland.
- “Synchrotron photoionization measurements of fundamental autoignition reactions: Product formation in low-temperature isobutane oxidation” by Arkke Eskola, Oliver Welz, John Savee, David Osborn, and Craig Taatjes (all in Sandia’s Combustion Chemistry Dept.) was selected as the distinguished paper in the Reaction Kinetics colloquium. (A figure and excerpt is given below, left.)
- “Large eddy simulation of a lifted ethylene flame using a dynamic nonequilibrium model for subfilter scalar variance and dissipation rate” by Jacqueline Chen (in Sandia’s Reacting Flow Research Dept.), Edward Richardson (Univ. of Southampton, UK), Edward Knudsen (Stanford), Venkat Raman (Univ. of Texas), and Colleen Kaul (Univ. of Texas and Stanford) was selected as the distinguished paper in the Turbulent Flames colloquium. (A figure and excerpt is given below, right.)
These papers, along with 10 other distinguished papers from the 34th Symposium, have been nominated as candidates for the Silver Combustion Medal. The winning paper will be announced at the 35th International Symposium on Combustion to be held August 3–8, 2014, in San Francisco, California, USA.
