Research area.
The main directions of basic and applied research are connected with the investigation of characteristics and critical phenomena of combustion processes, combustion in a limited volume, investigation of filtration combustion of gases and liquids, mathematical modelling of combustion processes, development of scientific foundations of fire and explosion safety.
Instrumentation.
The instruments available at the Laboratory include:
special-purpose boxes to carry out explosion and fire works;
spherical reaction vessels with a volume of 1, 10, 100, 1000 litres to carry out experiments involving combustion and explosion at a pressure up to 60 MPa and temperature to 750 K;
a set-up to investigate combustion under micro-gravitation conditions (1.2 seconds);
instruments for gas control and record of dynamic pressure and temperature;
instrumentation for high-rate video recording of flames;
devices for flow visualization (of the type of IAB-451), computers.
