Attraction of the leading scientists to Russian institutions of higher learning, research organizations of the governmental academies of sciences, and governmental research centers of the Russian Federation

Combustion modeling laboratory

About Laboratory

Grant Agreement No.: 14.Y26.31.0020

Project name: Development of physically proved models of combustion

Name of the institution of higher learning: Samara State Aerospace University

Fields of scientific research: Energy and Conservation

Project goal:

Project aims at creating physically justified models of combustion on the basis of new spectroscopic and kinetic data on chemical processes in combustion and flame characteristics.

Project objectives are:

- Measurements and calculations of the kinetic constants for the processes involved in initiation and sustainment of combustion, formation and destruction of noxious and active species (radicals, intermediates, excited atoms and molecules, ions, etc.);

- Development of gas-dynamic and kinetic models of combustion based on physically proved rate constants and their validation on laminar model flames;

- Development of competitive technologies of energy efficient and environmentally clean combustion of hydrocarbon fuels in propulsion systems on the basis of experimental and numerical studies.
