Cryogenic combustion

While the burning properties of flames have been extensively investigated at pressures below and above ambient, it is almost impossible to find any data for temperatures below 290 K. The PAC group investigates flame extinction by quenching on cryogenic surfaces and flame properties under cryogenic conditions. A part of this research is funded by The Boeing Company. This research is of relevance for the aerospace industry as well as for the transition to circular carbon economy.
