  • DIAGNOSTICS including the development and application of diagnostic techniques and sensors for the understanding and control of combustion and reacting flow phenomena.
  • SOLID FUEL COMBUSTION including fundamental aspects related to pyrolysis, oxidation, gasification, and ash formation from coal, biomass, and wastes, as well as combustion of propellants and metals and emissions and flue gas cleaning system.
  • HETERAGENOUS and SPRAY COMBUSTION including atomisation, combustion of droplets, sprays, and non-conventional fluids.
  • INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES including device specific aspects of fuels research, emissions, direct injection, and combustion dynamics.
