Combustion Technologies Group

Combustion research generates the fundamental physical and chemical knowledge on the interaction between flame and turbulence. Experimental and modeling studies lead to the design of better combustion devices with reduced emissions and increased efficiency.

EETD researchers develop cleaner combustion technologies, and they work with Berkeley Lab's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) to elucidate complex turbulent combustion processes using high-performance supercomputers.
