Towards fully coupled modeling of liquid atomization and dispersed spray combustion
Julien Reveillon is Professor at the Department of Physics of the University of Rouen and he conducts research at CORIA laboratory, a CNRS facility dedicated to energy research and related topics.
Julien's main areas of study are two-phase flows and combustion phenomena. He carries out direct numerical simulation (DNS) analysis of liquid atomization, dispersion and evaporation that leads to mixture ignition and flame propagation. Julien uses various numerical tools and focuses on the links between Eulerian and Lagrangian modeling of the liquid phase and on the junction of dense and dispersed flows from a modeling point of view.
Creation processes and how they act in various domains also interest Julien: research, art, etc. He teaches in the science department but also in humanities and he also engages in popularizing science and research through various lectures and conferences.
Julien graduated in 1993 before completing, in 1996 a Phd, from the University of Rouen, dedicated to large eddy simulation of reactive flows. After a post-doctoral year at University of Cambridge, UK, where he began his work on two-phase flows, he joined CORIA in 1998.
