The radiant porous burner is an innovative idea to improve heat transfer from gaseous burners where the fuel is burnt inside a ceramic matrix. The burner emits very low concentration of pollutant gases and is very effective in transferring heat by radiation. The project involves characterizing an existing radiant porous burner. It also involves the testing of the operating envelope and the effectiveness of different material in improving thermal efficiency while maintaining stable combustion regime.

This project suits students with interest in combustion and experimental work.
