Computational Chemistry Consortium Kicks Off In July
Madison, WisconsinㅡJuly 09, 2018ㅡThe kickoff meeting of the Computational Chemistry Consortium (C3) took place on July 09. C3 brings together industry, academic, and government partners with the goal of advancing combustion and emissions models, tools, and mechanisms. Dr. Kelly Senecal, founding member of C3, states, “We are thrilled to announce the first meeting of C3, which marks the start of a collaboration that should benefit the entire combustion community.”
At the kickoff meeting, C3 funds were allocated to research institutions with expertise in chemical kinetics modeling and experimentation, including the National University of Ireland Galway, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, RWTH Aachen University, and Politecnico di Milano. Professor Henry Curran, Chief Technical Advisor of C3, explains, “This research will enable the integration of hydrocarbon fuel chemical kinetics into combustion simulations to improve their predictive power.” In turn, improved combustion simulations will help manufacturers develop cleaner and more efficient engines.
C3 is accepting new members. If you are interested in becoming a member of C3, please contact us.
