The UCI Combustion Laboratory, (UCICL) is one of the components of the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) at the University of California, Irvine. The UCICL is addressing the challenges associated with the combustion of alternative and fossil fuels by developing and applying (1) advanced experimental capabilities including specialized test rigs, laser and conventional diagnostics, (2) numerical tools, and (3) statistically designed testing to problems of practical relevance. These tools are necessary to unravel the complex, multidisciplinary nature of combustion that has eluded understanding. A fundamental knowledge of the interaction between turbulent mixing and chemical reaction is required if practical combustion systems are to be improved beyond the current state of the art.
