The EFRI group’s first technical meeting takes place in Cardiff on 21 April. The meeting is entitled Challenges in the Design and Operation of High Pressure Combustion Test Rigs, and marks the launch of a programme of technical exchange meetings focussed on operational and measurement techniques in specific categories of combustion test rigs – rather than on the scientific results achieved with the rigs.
EFRI currently comprises an informal network of owners and users of combustion test rigs, and is facilitated by the IFRF. The April meeting is being organized by the IFRF and Cardiff University in association with TOTeM 34, and will be of interest to owners or operators of high pressure combustion test rigs who wish to share their experiences of the practical aspects of rig ownership and operation. The meeting is open to EFRI members only and no participation fee will be requested. Non EFRI members may apply for Membership at the same time as registering for the event.
All the relevant details and a downloadable registration form can be found in the entry for this event on the IFRF Events Calendar. From this link it is also possible to direct an email query to Neil Fricker.
Participants in this EFRI meeting will probably also find it beneficial to attend TOTeM34 on the topic: Gas Turbine Research: Fuels, Combustion, Heat Transfer and Emissions. The full programme brochure and registration form along with the Call for Posters may be downloaded from the TOTeM34 entry in the Events Calendar.
