Two papers by CRF researchers have been named Distinguished Papers for the 34th International Symposium on Combustion. “Synchrotron photoionization measurements of fundamental autoignition reactions: Product formation in low-temperature isobutane oxidation” by Arkke J. Eskola, Oliver Welz, John D. Savee, David L. Osborn, Craig A. Taatjes (all Combustion Research Facility) was selected as the Distinguished Paper in the Reaction Kinetics colloquium. “Large Eddy Simulation of a Lifted Ethylene Flame using a Dynamic Nonequilibrium Model for Subfilter Scalar Variance and Dissipation Rate” by Jacqueline H. Chen, Edward S. Richardson (University of Southhampton, UK), Edward Knudsen (Stanford), Venkat Raman (University of Texas), and Colleen M. Kaul (University of Texas and Stanford) was selected as the Distinguished Paper in the Turbulent Flames colloquium.
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 August 2014 at the 35th International Symposium on Combustion in San Francisco.
