The Ninth Mediterranean Combustion Symposium, jointly co-sponsored by the Combustion Institute and the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer, was held in Rhodes, Greece, in June 2015. It was built on the success of eight previous meetings held in Antalya, Turkey in June 1999, in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt in January 2002, in Marrakech, Morocco in June 2003, in Lisbon, Portugal in October 2005, in Monastir, Tunisia in eptember 2007, in Corsica, France in June 2009, in Sardinia, Italy in September 2011, and in Çeşme, Izmir, Turkey in September 2013. As before, the objective of the symposium was to give combustion scientists, engineers, and students from the Mediterranean as well as from other countries, an opportunity to get together for the dissemination of the international state-of-the-art and recent advances in the field and to enhance future collaborative research activities between scientists from different countries of the region. About 280 scientists from all over the world participated in the meeting. The program included eight invited lectures, five parallel sessions for oral presentation, and a poster session. The invited lectures were delivered by well known experts in the field (Driscoll, E. Kakaras, J. F. Egolfopoulos, G. Saracco, V. Scherer, and M. U. Alzueta). The sessions were performed on the following colloquia topics: reaction kinetics and reduced mechanisms; pollutant formation and control; combustion diagnostics; turbulent combustion; heterogeneous combustion and pyrolysis; stationary combustion systems and environmental impact; fire research; engine, gas turbine, and spray combustion; and CO2 capture processes and new combustion concepts. Further, 170 contributed papers and 17 posters were presented together with 6 invited lectures. All papers were reviewed on full manuscripts by colloquia co-chairs, advisory board members, and external reviewers. Invited lectures, accepted contributed papers, and abstracts of poster papers were collected together on a CD. This special issue of Combustion Science and Technology is the ninth of the series that started with the First Mediterranean Combustion Symposium and contains papers selected on the basis of quality reported by the reviewers in respect of the aims and scope of the journal.

Preface: Tenth Mediterranean Combustion Symposium
Selçuk, Nevin; Mansour, Mohy S.; D'Anna, Andrea (2019-01-02)
The Tenth Mediterranean Combustion Symposium, jointly co-sponsored by the Combustion Institute and the International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer was held in Naples, Italy in September 17–21, 2017. It was built on the success of nine previous meetings held in Antalya, Turkey, in June 1999, in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, in January 2002, in Marrakech, Morocco, in June 2003, in Lisbon, Portugal, in October 2005, in Monastir, Tunisia, in September 2007, in Corsica, France, in June 2009, in Sardinia, in Septem...
Operation of a multistory solar building under adverse climatic conditions
Taşdemiroğlu, E (Elsevier BV, 1990-1)
Architectural, urban, thermal, economic and industrial aspects of a multistory solar building have been investigated when operating under adverse climatic conditions in Turkey. Active, passive and hybrid space heating systems which could be adapted to the building structure have been studied comparatively. The magnitudes of the design elements and the technical-economic results of the selected hybrid system have been determined. A domestic hot water installation has been also described
Theoretical and experimental investigation of a humidification-dehumidification desalination system using solar energy
Solmuş, İsmail; Yamalı, Cemil; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, experimental and numerical studies have been carried out to investigate the performance of a solar desalination system working on humidification-dehumidification principle under the climatological conditions of Ankara, Turkey. The desalination unit was configured mainly by a double-pass flat plate solar air heater with two glass covers, pad humidifier, storage tank and dehumidifying exchanger. The system used in this work is based on the idea of closed water and open air cycles. A computer s...
Solar energy R&D, technology and economics in Turkey
Taşdemiroğlu, E (Elsevier BV, 1990-1)
The solar energy potential of Turkey is assessed. Solar energy R&D programs and technology and the present market for flat-plate solar collectors are briefly reviewed. The potential share of solar energy in the total energy budget is estimated.
Selçuk, Nevin (1988-07-01)
Three flux-type models for three-dimensional radiative heat transfer were applied to the prediction of the radiative flux density and the source term of a box-shaped enclosure problem based on data reported previously on a large-scale experimental furnace with steep temperature gradients. The models, which are a six-term discrete ordinate model and two Schuster-Schwarzschild type six-flux models, were evaluated from the viewpoints of both predictive accuracy and computational economy by comparing their pred...
