Abstract : The DOD URIP equipment grant received by the Fuels Combustion Research Group has been used, in accord with the original intent of the award, to update an advance the analytic capabilities of the combustion laboratories. The newly purchased gas and liquid chromatographic instrumentation have become the center pieces of a DOD supported analytic facility that was recently shown to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral William J. Crowe, Jr. as an example of DOD supported research in the School of Engineering. The chemical analysis instrumentation in the facility as well as the boron particle sizing and visualizing devices that have also been purchased are described briefly in this final report. Photographs of the installed equipment are used to facilitate the description of the various pieces of instrumentation. Keywords: Combustion products, Video equipment; Helium neon lasers.
