Lecture Details

Prof. Law is going to deliver a speech on combustion entitled “Some Fundamental Combustion Problems of Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial Interest” . The seminar will cover several topics on fundamental combustion to illustrate the technical and intellectual richness of the discipline: (1) synergistic combustion of blends of ethanol, diesel and biodiesel for enhanced atomization and soot reduction; (2) dynamics of droplet collision, especially for gelled hypergolic propellants; (3) morphology and self-acceleration of expanding flames; (4) systematic reduction of large reaction mechanisms for facilitated computation, and (5) detonative propagation of the Crab nebula shock front.
