The laboratory is provided with test chambers for the simulation of typical thermodynamic conditions of both spark ignition and diesel engines. Typical gas turbine combustion chamber conditions can also be obtained. In these conditions both spray liquid and vapor phase visualizations are performed. Droplet diameters and velocities measurements by Phase Doppler Anemometry (PDA) are performed.
