The expertise in this group includes combustion science, technology and innovation, energy, thermo-fluids and heat transport technology. Group de Goey is active and well-known for numerical and experimental research in the field of laminar flames, turbulent flames, engines, gas turbines, flame thermo-acoustics, etc. The two most important achievements are the invention of
1. The Heat Flux Method, one of the most accurate methods known for measuring adiabatic burning velocities and used by at least 12 other groups in the world, which will be extended to metal fuels within the current project.
2. The FGM method, a very efficient and accurate combustion modeling technique, also well recognized in the combustion community worldwide and also used by more than 30 groups/industries over the world.
