Research in the High Pressure Shock Tube Laboratory focuses on the experimental examination and the modeling simulation of the kinetics of combustion chemistry. The chemistry of interest is that which takes place during the pyrolysis and oxidation of hydrocarbon fuels. The fuels are either aircraft engine or ground transportation fuels which are introduced into the high pressure shock for experimental examination of reaction products and into the low pressure shock tube when complementary studies are required.
