Combustion Research

At Twente University Bert contributed to the development of theoretical descriptions for nonlinear coal-particle combustion and for propagation of reaction fronts using high activation energy asymptotics.

In Eindhoven Bert participated in the EU projects "BIOAEROSOL" and "BIOASH". A new process and apparatus was devised for removing aerosol forming vapours from gases by wall desublimation in a specially designed heat exchanger, see
