We are honoured to host the 26th ‘Journées d’Études’, the biennial meeting of the Belgian Section of The Combustion Institute. The objectives of this meeting include both fundamental research and industrial applications relevant to combustion processes. The purpose is to have an overview of the most recent research efforts in the combustion field and to provide opportunities for scientists and engineers to establish collaboration. The scope therefore covers a wide range of subjects related to reaction mechanisms, heat transfer, furnaces and burners, flame structures, modelling, flame inhibition, incineration, pollutants emission, detonation phenomena, fire, etc.

Language

The language of the meeting is English.
