Welcome to Gore Group

Jay Gore is the Vincent P. Reilly Professor in School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. The research group works in the areas of combustion and radiation heat transfer with applications to pollutant reduction, efficiency enhancements, fire safety, and improved fundamental understanding of various combustion phenomenon. This research group contributes in many fields such,


  • Turbulent and laminar
  • Non-premixed, partially premixed, and premixed
  • Non-luminous (non-sooting) and luminous (sooting)
  • Gaseous and multi-phase (spray)
  • Plasma-assisted combustion
  • Radiation heat transfer
  • Fire detection, control, and suppression
  • Radiant burners
  • Hot Surface Ignition - Quiescent and Cross-flow                                                                          
  • Application of laser diagnostics
  • CO2 emission reduction
  • New process development


Carbon Nanotubes

  • Numerical study of nanotube growth in flames.


Hydrogen Storage

  • Development and analysis of hydrogen storage using chemical hydrides
  • Fundamental understanding of dehydrogenation kinetics
