A swirling micro-meso combustion chamber is a chamber in which the position of the inlet ducts (fuel and oxidizer) imposes a swirling motion inside the chamber itself. This increases the residence time, enhances mixing and then improves the combustion stability and efficiency.

Such device, order of 10^-2 – 10^-3 [m], may be fed indifferently with hydrocarbons and/or hydrogen, up to 1000[W] of injected thermal power and may provide thrust or electrical energy if connected with a micronozzle or a microturbine.

Researching on this topic keeps from 2007 due to several National and International Research Projects.

Moreover, many Collaborations, Lectures and Documents have characterized or have been produced during these years.

Please see the specific sections for further details.
