Advanced Propulsion Research Laboratory (APRL)

The Advanced Propulsion Research Lab (APRL) conducts fundamental and applied research in chemical propulsion and power, more specifically, to solve problems involving combustors, propellants, and fuel management system. Much of our focus is on high-speed combustion and flow research for gas turbines, ramjets, scramjets, rockets, and detonation engines. The objectives are to enhance physical understanding, develop enabling technologies, and incorporate our results for improving future engine design and performance. The goal is to make advanced propulsion system more reliable, more affordable, and environmentally sustainable.
