welcome to microgravity and multi-phase combustion laboratory- prof. yu cheng liu's research group !!!
at the center for combustion energy, the research interests of our group cover a range of combustion and transdisplinary problems. our goal is to develop useful models with rigorous experimental validations for practical applications. specfic research topics include:
1) novel approach for modelling transport, vaporization, and chemical kinetics of complex fuels;
2) dynamics of partially premixed flames;
3) single droplet and group combustion processes: ignition, hot flame and cool flame, and mode transitions;
4) combustion processes in microgravity environments for fundamental theories and space applications;
novel modelling method for vaporization complex hydrocarbon fuels

surrogate mixtures for modelling real fuels are formulated based on gaseous combustion property targets and liquid physical properties. a batch distillation model was developed to evaluate the vaporization characteristics of some existing surrogates ...
