Prof. Dr. A. Sadiki is leader of the theoretical/numerical group at Institute EKT. The EKT has approximately 20 senior and junior scientists. Focused on applied combustion research including modelling, simulation and validation investigations, he is involved since more than 25 years in the numerical modelling and prediction of combustion systems following various approaches including URANS, LES, DNS and PDF/FDF as well as hybrid LES/CAA approach for combustion noise. One of his research interests focuses on developing novel techniques for modelling and simulating turbulent single phase and multiphase reacting flows, multi-scale and multi-physic interaction processes such as combustion-turbulence, combustion-acoustics, turbulence-particle-chemistry, mass and heat transfer along with flame-wall interaction, species formation, and control using Large Eddy Simulation, Scale Adaptive Simulations among other techniques. Especially his modeling is based on a thermodynamically consistent strategy relying on the second law of thermodynamics via the entropy inequality. The application combustion objects are especially power plants, gas turbines and IC-engines.
It is worth mentioning that strong international cooperation activities are fostered with a large number of research groups worldwide.
