Combustion Research Facility (CRF) researchers Kai Moshammer, Ahren Jasper, Arnas Lucassen, Arkke Eskola, Craig Taatjes, and Nils Hansen (all in Sandia’s Combustion Chemistry Dept.) as part of an international collaboration reported, in Journal of Physical Chemistry A, detecting and identifying previously undiscovered partially oxidized intermediates. This work provides experimental confirmation of the generally accepted dimethyl […]
Tom Linebarger, Cummins Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, and John Wall, Vice President and Chief Technical Officer, visited Sandia’s Combustion Research Facility in late May.
Kamlesh Patel (in Sandia’s Advanced Systems Engineering & Deployment Dept.) briefed the visitors on Sandia’s microfluidic technology.
Terry Johnson (in Sandia’s Energy Innovation Dept.) provided an update on the free piston alternator […]
Researchers at Sandia and Argonne national laboratories have demonstrated, for the first time, a method to successfully predict pressure-dependent chemical reaction rates—an important breakthrough in combustion and atmospheric chemistry that is expected to benefit auto and engine manufacturers, oil and gas utilities, and other industries that employ combustion models. A paper describing the work, performed […]
Sandia’s Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) team develops methodologies to identify hazards, understand risk drivers, and develop strategies to reduce risk in hydrogen infrastructure. The models, data, methods, and tools developed by Sandia facilitate the use of science and engineering to support the development of codes and standards that ensure the safe use of hydrogen. The […]
The materials and components compatibility program element applies Sandia’s core capability in hydrogen embrittlement to address fundamental questions about the mechanical behavior of materials when exposed to high-pressure gaseous hydrogen. The cornerstone of Sandia’s core capability in hydrogen embrittlement is the Hydrogen Effects on Materials Laboratory where specialized assets reside for conducting mechanical testing of […]
