Combustion and spray test facilities

The NRC Aerospace Research Centre has a multitude of Combustion and spray test facilities to support the research, testing and validation of low-emissions, fuel-flexible combustion systems, as well as fuel spray nozzles and injectors at realistic high-pressure conditions.

Other measurement capabilities

Available experimental techniques include temperature and multi-hole pressure probe measurements; multi-wire, hot-wire, and surface-mounted hot-film measurements; schlieren flow visualization; 2D and 3D particle image velocimetry; PDPA; PLIF; surface temperature measurement with liquid crystals; and surface pressure measurement with pressure sensitive paint. Data acquisition and control systems are developed in-house.

Full instrumentation for measuring and recording gas and liquid temperatures, pressures and flow rates, wall temperatures, and combustor exit gas temperatures and gas composition profiles, using water-cooled rakes.
