Combustion phenomena are studied in our Reactive Gas Dynamics Laboratory.
Our interests include not only conventional fuels but also alternative and next-generation fuels such as carbon neutral biomass, coal gasification gas and hydrogen. Huge amount of energy is utilized by combustion of fuel in the world. And the demand for energy is still growing. It is very important to understand combustion properties of these fuels for global warming and energy issues. We investigate the fundamental and practical aspects of combustion properties and techniques by experiments using an apparatus unique in the world and numerical simulation. Our studies also contribute to the developments of automobile engines and combustors in industries.
