Chemical kinetic processes in combustion are responsible for soot and pollutant formation, as well as limitations to the overall heat release and extinction behavior. The detailed chemical kinetic properties of reacting systems are explored through spectroscopic measurements in laboratory flames and high-temperature reactors, as well as with numerical modeling. The numerical work will involve a time-dependent DNS model with full and reduced chemistry. Diagnostic equipment includes particle image velocimetry, emission spectroscopy, laser scattering and extinction, and Phase-Doppler Particle Analysis. Opportunities also exist for measurements using laser spectroscopy and mass spectrometry.
