Project summary description:
This project aims to address key fundamental issues that will facilitate the combustion of hydrogen-based fuels for power and mobility. This is achieved by applying advanced laser diagnostics and novel computational methods to turbulent flames of hydrogen fuel blends hence generating new physical knowledge and predictive models. These will provide engineers with essential tools to design and operate fuel-flexible energy systems that speed up the critical transition towards employing green hydrogen.
