The high-pressure combustion (HPC) research group at Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) has been actively involved in advanced optical diagnostics research to understand and control combustion processes at elevated pressure.

The HPC group contributes to combustion field in the development and application of laser-based techniques for non-intrusive measurements of concentrations, temperature, droplet and particle sizes, and velocity in reactive flows. The researchers also study on development of new surrogate fuels and new combustor designs aiming more eco-friendly combustion. The experimental studies in the HPC group are combined with modeling of reaction mechanisms and the simulation of reactive flows.

Professor William L. Roberts is the founder and director of the HPC group. Currently 21 graduate members are actively working on research projects. The HPC Group works closely with CCRC’s other research groups.
