Shock Wave Group at ICARE

ICARE, UPR3021, CNRS, Orléans

The “Shock Wave” group is particularly interested in the field of high temperature chemical kinetics and the dynamics of flames and explosions. This research is oriented towards understanding on the one hand the formation of gaseous and particulate pollutants such as soot, and on the other hand the speed of energy release from gaseous or solid fuels with applications ranging from explosion safety to the development of new fuels for ground and aerospace transport.
Experimental facilities, often unique, have been developed by the team to conduct these studies such as shock and detonation tubes, flame acceleration chambers and spherical chambers. These facilities are coupled with advanced diagnostic, laser and spectrophotometric systems.
These studies are carried out within the framework of national and international projects such as :
