Combustion Engineering Laboratory

Understanding combustion dynamics to reduce damage from explosions and to improve combustion methods

Many flammable substances can be used effectively as sources of energy if they are treated appropriately as fuel, while mishandling them can cause explosions or fires—in both cases the substance is burning. Our laboratory is trying to understand combustion mechanisms more deeply to create better combustion methods and technologies that will reduce the damage caused by flammable gas explosions.
