dc.description.abstractHIGH PRESSURE COMBUSTION The main objective of our research is to understand the turbulence - chemistry interaction at practical conditions: •high Reynolds numbers •high pressures •multi-component and emerging fuels (e.g., NH3) •high gas mass flow We have developed unique hardware to allow quantitative measurements of vector and scalar quantities with high spatial and temporal resolution. Our high pressure lab is the only facility in the world capable of these condition combinations. SOOT FORMATION We are interested in soot formation at high pressure. We separate formation from oxidation using inverse diffusion flame. We are able to employ advanced diagnostics to measure species and morphology to further our understanding of soot formation. PRESSURE GAIN To study pressure gain, we replace isobaric heat addition in the Brayton cycle with isochoric heat addition. This helps demonstrate the stagnation pressure gain at elevated pressures and the reduction in NOx formation. GASIFICATION We are establishing a gasifier capable of handling different solids, liquids, and gases. Gasification is used to improve the value of many low-value fuels by converting them to clean syngas. Syngas can be converted to power, hydrogen, and chemicals, etc. CORROSION Understanding the effects new fuels have on materials becomes critical. A high-pressure, high-temperature rig is used to elucidate the behavior of the material and environment interaction after long-term exposure. DESULFURIZATION Desulfurizing fuel is critical to help reduce emissions. Particularly, we focus on removing sulfur from heavy fuel oil to demonstrate its ability to burn cleanly. SONOCHEMISTRY We are furthering our understanding of the mechanical and chemical effects of ultrasonic cavitation. This sonochemistry leads to the formation and the collapse of very small bubbles which creates large interfacial areas and very high temperatures and pressure when they collapse. We want to understand the effect when we expose heavy fuel oil to ultrasonic cavitation to further the safe usage of HFO. CRYOGENIC CARBON CAPTURE To adopt the 4 R’s of reduce, reuse, recycle, and remove, we are diving into the technology of carbon capture. We are developing a trailer-mounted CCC skid to be easily transported to various test sites in the Kingdom to help remove carbon from emissions. This skid has the additional capability to onboard other pollutants such as SOx and NOx.
