The objective of this grant is to purchase a coupled diagnostic system that will enable high resolution measurements of heat flow and phase change allowing chemical kinetic modeling of surface chemistry using an advanced DSC TGA via simultaneous thermal analysis STA. This diagnostic couples with existing Quadrapol Mass Spectrometer QMS that enables gas species identification in-situ equilibrium reaction. This system is also coupled with state-of-the-art IR imaging technology that enables nanosecond integration time and micron scale resolution to resolve the early stages of localized energy build up leading to ignition.
