Explosions
Avoiding or controlling combustible gas explosions in closed or partially-vented vessels (e.g. chemical reactors, grinding plants, silos, buildings filled with combustible gas after leaks) constitutes an important problem area of industrial safety engineering.
That is why precise knowledge of the sequence mechanisms and the influence of explosion-determining parameters is needed for risk assessment.
Besides the type and concentration of combustion gas, the turbulence structure is also particularly significant for the speed (severity) of the explosion sequence and hence for the dimensioning of effective venting devices.

On top of this, knowing how the turbulent combustion speed depends on the turbulence state of the mixture is important when designing power plant combustion chambers and combustion engines. The turbulent combustion speed can be determined experimentally during an explosion process.
The advantage here is that with simple experimental facilities one is able to set up high combustion speeds like those that occur in practice.
