New Diagnostic Capability Provides 3-D Measurements of Turbulent Flame Dynamics Using High-Repetition Rate Tomographic Particle Image Velocimetry

Capturing turbulence–flame interaction structure and studying time–history effects requires high-speed volumetric measurements performed at repetition rates sufficiently fast to resolve the relevant flow time scales. Advances in the CRF’s imaging diagnostic capabilities are overcoming these challenges to provide a more complete picture of the structure and dynamics of turbulence–flame interactions. The Advanced Imaging Laboratory has…

VFP Professor Balint Sztaray Continues CRF Collaboration

Over the past two summers and a sabbatical semester in 2013, University of the Pacific (UOP) chemistry professor Balint Sztaray and his research group have been working with the CRF’s David Osborn on a project to improve the selectivity of the current multiplexed gas-phase chemical kinetics instrument. Specifically, the two researchers are focusing on developing…

Faculty and Students Pursue CRF Research under DOE Programs

The DOE Office of Science Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) initiative maintains a decades-long legacy of developing the next generation of scientists, teachers, and engineers. Today, undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers across the country are performing R&D at universities and national laboratories partially funded by grants from WDTS programs. The CRF is…
