Description of Research
Research on fossil fuels, combustion and emission control; Specific research projects recently completed or in-progress include:

Turbulent premixed methane-air combustion; Surface-modified coal for enhanced catalyst dispersion and liquefaction; Non-thermal plasma discharge technology for NOx removal;

Study of the performance of infra-red natural gas burners; Catalytic gasification of coal using eutectic salt mixtures; Experimental and numerical studies of instabilities in Ramjet combustors; Study of the sub and supercritical behavior of droplets and jets; Liguid fuels: Pyrolytic degradation and fire spread behavior as influenced by buoyancy.
