Chemical Weapons Incinerator
combustion simulations tools were combined with specialized chemical
mechanisms to analyze operation of a chemical weapons incinerator.
Modeling objectives included evaluation of operating conditions
for improved furnace performance (increased throughput), indication
of extent of chemical weapons destruction, assessment of refractory
wear, analysis of products of incomplete combustion, and evaluation
of effects of oxygen deficiency on chemical destruction.
Thermal/Catalytic Solid Waste Incineration System
led a team to develop a solid waste incineration system for NASA's
Advanced Life Support Program. Modeling and experimental techniques
were used to design the system. Key project tasks included design
and performance of the feed system, fluidized bed combustor, particulate
collection, and catalyst beds. Pilot-scale system was designed,
built, tested and delivered to NASA.
