The quality of spray combustion processes is often pre-determined through the conditions at the moment of ignition. The ignition process is a complex interplay between physical processes of heating and vaporization and the chemical kinetic including low- and high temperature reactions.more...

Laser Diagnostics have been proven to be an important tool to investigate combustion fundamentals. Applying laser diagnostic systems to combustion machinery like internal combustion engines, furnaces, boilers and gas turbines supported the understanding of operational problems and assisted its optimization.more...

Numerical simulations in combustion are the gateway between fundamentals and terrestrial applications.

Fundamental research is to understand the problems, simulation will transfer the knowledge to different conditions.more...

Thermoacoustic instabilities in combustion of lean gaseous premixtures are the major problem to counteract when aiming for low-NOx emissive combustion systems.more...

Fire is one of the main threats in manned spaceflight. The research is aiming for suitable qualification tests to overcome the existing limitations in the portability of test results from ground to space.more...
