Objective

Description:

ENEL Produzione - Ricerca is a member of the Euro Flam, which is the Consortium of Large Scale Facilities in the Field of Energy, Combustion and Environment; the other members are IFRF, the Netherlands and University of Wales, Cardiff. The ENEL installations consist of a range of semi-industrial and demo scale facilities located in Pisa, Livorno, Sesta and Brindisi. These facilities are normally utilised to increase the knowledge on the most important aspects that govern combustion and pollutant formation in furnaces, boilers and gas turbine combustors. Conventional and novel fuels can be catered for, as well as processes such as gasification and pyrolysis applications. Advanced laser diagnostic instrumentation such as 2D LDA, PIV and 2D PDA systems can be used on the research rigs. To support the experimental analysis, the infrastructure has chemical laboratories and an extensive range of computer systems.

The functions offered within the infrastructure are unique in Europe and indeed globally for the following reasons:
- Each of the rigs has unique features and operating characteristics to offer to visit Users. Available for use on these rigs is a unique selection of "state of the art" commercial diagnostic techniques;
- Complementary computational fluid dynamic codes within a range of hardware systems are available with many years experience in applying them to the above mentioned research equipment.

Application:

The call for proposals is undertaken on a rolling programme. Potential applicants can enquire directly to the Programme Manager or via the Euro Flam Homepage. Calls for proposals are published directly to European Engineering Professors and via the IFRF "Monday Night" email Newsletter. The chairman of the Users Selection Panel is Mr Peter Roberts (IFRF). The panel meets twice a year to discuss the acceptability of Users. Individual Programme Managers have the responsibility of co-ordinating facility applications, and involves a) an application form, b) a letter of support, c) a CV d) project description and e) technical reference. It is expected that graduates with degrees in Engineering or Sciences are the most suitable candidates.
