  • Boron Combustor

    Boron is synthesized at kilogram level and a combustor for Nano Boron slurry fuel is being developed using a slinger combustor configuration.

  • Scaling down fire tests

    Fire tests of fire fighting foams at smaller scale are cost effective for users wanting to quickly check the effectiveness of
    stored foams.

  • Burning Velocity Correlations

    A simple generalized correlation is deduced for all hydrocarbons fuels taking into account effects of pressure and temperature
    on the laminar flame
    speed.

  • Clean Combustion from Pool Fires

    Used-heptane from fire tests poses disposal challenges.  Clean combustion of this fuel with increased burn rate can support our in-house fire door testing.

  • FDS Studies on Porous Wall Configuration

    Porous wall configuration of UL-JFL is simulated using Fire Dynamics Simulator software to understand the effect of asymmetry caused by solid North wall.

  • Modeling Pan Fire Burn Behavior

    Heat feed back to the liquid pool below the fire through conduction effects is modeled to understand factors contributing to
    pool-fire
    burn rates.
