Abstract
A number of fundamental research projects devoted to combustion processes have been carried out during the last years in the Department of Heat Technology and Refrigeration of the Technical University of Lodz, Poland. The investigations under various conditions of combustion have been conducted with the following research facilities and equipment: (1) a drop tower with 1.2 sec of microgravity conditions and ca. 1 m3 volume of the experimental package, (2) a test rig with a rotating cylindrical vessel (combustion chamber) up to 6000 rpm, (3) schlieren devices of 300 and 150 mm diameter, including a compact system for experiments in the drop tower, (4) several specialized chambers for combustion of gas- and two-phase mixtures, (5) high speed photography equipment including a 500 fps camera. Some of the experiments and facilities are presented on 27.5 min long video and mentioned in this paper in a form of the editing list of the video. Some examples of abstracts of particular specialized publications are quoted.
