University of Birmingham
For more than a century, the University of Birmingham has been pursuing and sharing knowledge through outstanding teaching and world-leading research.
We are the original ‘redbrick’ University, part of the prestigious Russell Group; our thriving student population enjoys a wide range of courses, and exceptional campus and research facilities.
The 10 Nobel Laureates we count among our staff and alumni have contributed to some of science’s greatest discoveries, including in recent times the Higgs Boson and Gravitational Waves. Our research provides innovative solutions to the challenges we face in our city, our region and across the globe.
We encourage and empower people to turn ideas into reality and make important things happen.
Role in the project
In RefMap we will be working with KTH to provide engine specific emissions models which account for the use of blends of Sustainable Aviation Fuels to feed into the systems wide models of the impact of aircraft operations. We will be using 1-D reactor network models of the engine combustor designs coupled with fuel specific chemical kinetic combustion models. Where sufficient data is not available we will be using a reverse engineering technique to identify the key characteristics of the combustor geometry needed for these models.
