Two-phase thermofluid processes can be utilized and optimized to contribute to Environmental Protection and Pollution reduction. This paper describes recent advances in understanding and optimizing some of these processes, which are employed within a broad range of engineering applications including combustion engines, power generators and large-scale uncontrolled hazards such as fires or explosions. It describes advances in understanding of novel fuel injection and atomization processes, the development of direct numerical simulation (DNS) techniques for free-boundary two-phase problems and the potential of future modeling approaches. Progress in understanding two-phase combustion systems includes burning rate, ignition characteristics, explosions involving high-flashpoint fuels, flame interaction with water vapor and water mists, and the generation of ultrafine particulate matter. Advances in both experimental and modeling approaches are discussed.
