Combustion, Fire, and Plasma Systems: The Combustion, Fire, and Plasma Systems program supports fundamental research and education on the title subjects. Among the broader societal impacts of the program are cleaner global and local environments, enhanced public safety, improved energy and homeland security, and more efficient manufacturing.This program is not an applied research program, but rather it provides broad, basic knowledge that can be used by others in development of systems for combustion and plasma applications and for mitigating the effects of fire. Broad-based tools - - computational, experimental, or diagnostic - - that can be applied to a variety of problems in combustion, fires, and/or plasmas are major products of this endeavor. Areas of interest include: * Gas, liquid, and solid combustion in premixed, non-premixed, partially premixed, or flow reactor configurations * Laminar and turbulent combustion over a range of temperatures and pressures and length scales * Structure and dynamics of flames and plasmas * The science needed to enable use of domestically generated alternate fuels * Improved understanding of flame spread, inhibition, and suppression * Atmospheric-pressure plasmas and other emerging plasma-processing methods relevant to biotechnology, material synthesis, and other industrial applications * Mitigation of combustion-generated pollution * Basic climate-change technology research directly related to combustion, fire, or plasma systems * Development of diagnostic tools and the needed underlying science * Projects that intersect nanotechnology and either combustion, fire, or plasma science * Projects that combine combustion and plasma science or contribute to both fields of research are encouraged * Projects relevant to combustion, fires, or plasmas that contribute to the emerging cyberinfrastructure for scientific information technologyThe duration of unsolicited awards is generally one to three years. The average annual award size for the program is $80,000. Please check the NSF Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems Division (CBET) Home Page for the two annual submission windows for unsolicited proposals. Small equipment proposals up to $100,000 will also be considered and may be submitted during these windows. Any proposal received outside the announced dates will be returned without review.The duration of CAREER awards is five years. The submission deadline for Engineering CAREER proposals is in July every year. Please see the following URL for more information: Proposals for Small Grants for Exploratory Research (SGER), Conferences, Workshops, and Supplements may be submitted at any time, but must be discussed with the program director before submission.Please refer to the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG), January 2008, (NSF 08-1) when you prepare your proposal. Chapter II, especially, will assist you. The GPG is available for download at:
