GRANTS

ÚNKP Bolyai+ Grant (2018-2019)

Viktor Józsa has won an extension grant for his János Bolyai Research Grant, aiming the support of researchers at the universities. The Bolyai+ grant is supporting the researcher for two semesters, 10 months in total.

The additional research is focusing on the research topics of András Urbán and Dávid Csemány who are pursuing their PhD. The common extra research with András is focusing on the spray cone angle of an airblast atomizer. The other research with Dávid aims the investigation of existing evaporation models available in the literature and extend them by the results of distillation measurement data.

NVIDIA Corporation has donated a Quadro P6000 GPU to the research group via the GPU grant program

The combustion research group has won a Quadro P6000 GPU for simulation purposes. It has 24 GB VRAM, 3840 CUDA cores, and its FP32 performance peaks at 12 TFLOPS.

This massive GPGPU will be used for simulating various processes in liquid fuel combustion. However, its performance exceeds that of any commercial CPUs, utilizing all of its capabilities is a rather challenging task since the communication between the GPU and the CPU is characterized by low bandwidth.

OTKA Research Grant (2017-2021)

The Combustion Research Group has won an OTKA (Hungarian Scientific Reserch Fund) grant for four years. It covers the construction of a new combustion test facility for liquid and gaseous fuels besides financial support of the researchers.

The grant requires the informing of the public via the web, therefore, this site was coming to live mostly for this purpose. However, the continuously growing research activity will greatly benefit from this platform.

János Bolyai Research Grant of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (2017-2020)

After getting his PhD, Viktor Józsa applied for few national grants to continue combustion research in Hungary. The first succesful application was for the János Bolyai Research Grant of the Hungarian Academy of sciences.

The three year period focuses on acoustical research, using a liquid-fueled lean premixed prevaporized burner.
