Professor Magin Lapuerta

Time of visit: September to December 2014

Magín Lapuerta is a Professor at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain, since 1995. He has leaded the Fuels and Engines Group since its foundation in 1996. The research lines of this group are mainly focused on diesel combustion and emissions, with particular attention to the effect of the use of residual and renewable fuels from different feedstoks on the engine gaseous and particulate emissions. He spent a 4-month stage  at the Combustion Research Laboratory (University of Toronto) collaborating with prof. M.J. Thomson and performed experiments to study the morphology and fractal properties of soot particles in the flames of different fuels . including n-decane, 1-decene, 5-decene, and a surrogate for biodiesel.

Time of visit: September to December 2014

Javier Barba is a postdoc researcher at the University of Castilla-La Mancha,Spain, since 2014. His main research lines are biomass gasification and diesel combustion and emissions with particular attention to the effect of the use of residual and renewable fuels from different feedstoks on the engine gaseous and particulate emissions. He has presented 5 congress and published 4 scientific articles in international journals. He visited CRL from September 2014 to December 2014.

 Sebastien Thion

Time of visit: April to August 2012

Sebastien visited CRL during summer 2012 when he was a graduate master student in the University of Orleans in France. He worked with Mohammad Reza Kholghy and performed measurements on laminar coflow diffusion flames of MURI jet fuel surrogate and Jet A POSF 4658 which is a standard jet fuel. He measured soot volume fraction and temperature profiles of the two flames. His measurements confirmed that the second generation of MURI jet fuel surrogate represents very well the sooting tendency of the standard Jet fuel.
