The Thermodynamics and Combustion Laboratory (TCL) investigates combustion properties of alternative and conventional fuels with the aim of improving energy conversion efficiencies and reducing emissions of harmful byproducts. The work combines experiments, modeling, and simulations aimed at understanding and developing predictive models for ignition phenomena, flame propagation, pollutant formation, and effects of fuel blends on combustion behavior.
