Institute for Combustion Technology (ITV)

ITV deals with the modelling and simulation of turbulent, reacting multiphase flows in energy conversion and nanoparticle processes.

About us

With about 20 scientific employees and students, the Institute for Combustion Technology of the University of Stuttgart conducts research on the fundamentals of modelling and simulation of turbulent, reacting flows in the areas of gas phase combustion, multiphase flows (gaseous/liquid and gaseous/solid) and nanoparticle processes. The teaching of ITV covers the fundamentals and advanced topics in combustion technology and simulation of reacting flow systems, as well as related programming basics.

Please note that there will be no consultation hours at the institute until further notice!

The office will be staffed sporadically on site, but one can contact the office via email.

In general, all staff can be contacted via email.

We offer to the students the opportunity to take part in the upcoming presentations of the study- and master theses at ITV and to receive proof of this (form "seminar lectures").

The presentations are for the time being only "virtual", so you can join via Webex.

The link to the respective talk will be shown here on the presentation date at the latest.

Please write an email to the Administrator (see below) if you want to attend and need a proof!
