Extreme Combustion Environments


The primary objective is to develop a series of canonical flames in extreme environments suitable as validation testbeds for predictive models. Using advanced diagnostic techniques, spatially and temporally resolved measurements of temperature, species (major and minor), heat release rate, velocity, soot loading and morphology, and spray characteristics will be made in a number of geometries with well-defined boundary conditions. The outcome will be a unique and relevant set of validation data in very high pressure, high Reynolds number flames and sprays.
