Section II: Object

II.1)Scope of the procurement
II.1.1)Title:

High Pressure Shock Tube

Reference number: 2611/DM
II.1.2)Main CPV code
38000000 Laboratory, optical and precision equipments (excl. glasses)
II.1.3)Type of contract
Supplies
II.1.4)Short description:

The University of Sheffield (UoS) with funding from European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is establishing a shock tube laboratory as part of its brand-new Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC). The intention of the shock tube is to study high-pressure chemical kinetics of combustion reactions using various diagnostic equipment.

The shock tube will be used to study high-pressure and high-temperature chemical kinetics of hydrogen and methane combustion, before moving onto syngas and larger hydrocarbons. The tube will focus on high-pressure combustion applications, such as the Allam-Fetvedt cycle, diesel engine and scram-jet combustion.

II.1.5)Estimated total value
Value excluding VAT: 150 000.00 GBP
II.1.6)Information about lots
This contract is divided into lots: no
II.2)Description
II.2.2)Additional CPV code(s)
45350000 Mechanical installations
73100000 Research and experimental development services
II.2.3)Place of performance
NUTS code: UKE32 Sheffield
Main site or place of performance:

The University of Sheffield, at a new research facility known as the Translational Energy Research Centre, which is being constructed close to Junction 33 of the M1 motorway.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The shock tube will be used to study high-pressure and high-temperature chemical kinetics of hydrogen and methane combustion, before moving onto syngas and larger hydrocarbons. The shock tube will focus on high-pressure combustion applications, such as the Allam-Fetvedt cycle, diesel engine and scram-jet combustion.

The UoS Shock Tube based at TERC will be used to study high-pressure combustion and produce data which will subsequently be used to create a chemical kinetic mechanism for modelling high-pressure combustion.
