Combustion Laboratory

This lab, which occupies 1500 feet of space in Salisbury Laboratories, was added in February 2010. It houses 1 fume hood and 2 large hoods (4000 cfm), in addition to student offices and a small conference room. Equipment in the lab includes an intelligent Laser Applications GmbH (ILA) 75 mW fixed optical path length fp50-shift LDA system for measuring velocity, an environmental chamber (-30ºC to 40ºC), a Servomex ServoTough Oxy paramagnetic oxygen analyzer capable of measuring oxygen concentration in corrosive environments, and a Servomex Oxy paramagnetic gas analyzer for measuring CO, CO2 and O2 vapor.

The laboratory has the capability of designing experiments suited to specific projects, many of which are discussed online at http://combustionlab.wpi.edu/.
