The Combustion Laboratory includes facilities for basic experimental work in thermofluids and combustion research, including:
The available instrumentations inlcudes:
Within this framework, the research agenda has been oriented towards combining efforts in developing mathematical/physical models to downsize of energy conversion systems. Flow phenomena occurring in microfluidic devices has been studied, with and without chemical reaction, towards the development of new theoretical and empirical models for micro-scale flow phenomena, as well as on the design on new practical systems. It is a multidisciplinary research field, combining branches of physics, mechanics, optics and fluid dynamics with chemistry. The general objective is to develop and use different tools and new approaches to support the development of energy sustainable products towards consumers, ranging from heating/cooling suppliers to medical devices.
