Laboratory exercises, field observations and field trips are a fundamental part of many earth science and environmental science courses. Field observations and field trips can be constrained because of distance, time, expense, scale, safety, or complexity of real-world environments. Our objectives were to develop an environmental virtual field laboratory to(More)
The inert and oxidative flash pyrolysis of High Density Poly-Ethylene (HDPE) is studied 6 up to 20 000 K.s-1 , under pressure up to 3.0 MPa and at temperature ranging from 1000 K to 7 1500 K. These conditions are considered to represent those waited onboard a hybrid rocket 8 engine using HDPE as solid fuel. Recycling applications may also find some(More)
This is a PDF file of an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of the manuscript. The manuscript will undergo copyediting, typesetting, and review of the resulting proof before it is published in its final form. Please note that during the production process errors may(More)
8 Hybrid combustors are of increasing interest for space and civilian propulsion. A test facility has been settled to 9 investigate the high density polyethylene combustion (propellant of 0.15 m long). A parametric study has been 10 achieved on the oxidiser nature (gaseous oxygen diluted in nitrogen, from 31.4 vol.% to 69.2 vol.% of O 2), on the 11 oxidiser(More)
