  • Content Description: A combustion system typically involves a complex interaction of chemical and fluid mechanical phenomena. It is a fertile field for sophisticated research and development which draw on the academic disciplines of high temperature chemical kinetics and turbulent fluid mechanics. A number of the most recent experimental and theoretical research techniques, such as laser based instrumentation, molecular beam techniques, and powerful computational and numerical analysis techniques in fluid mechanics can be fully exploited in well planned programs of combustion research. The initiation of research on problems associated with coal combustion is discussed in the first two articles. The subsequent twelve articles summarize research projects covering a wide variety of combustion problems. Several are directly related to pollution problems; in particular there is a coordinated program aimed at developing clean burning internal combustion engines. Another important general area being studied (in three experimental and two theoretical projects) is the complex interaction of fluid mechanical turbulence with combustion heat release.
