The research activity of Ernesto Salzano is addressed to:

  • Experimental and modeling analysis of accidental deflagrative and detonative combustion of solid, liquid and gases (fires, explosions);
  • Development of risk assessment methodologies for industry, with specific reference to external events (domino effects, natural events, security);
  • Chemical Process Safety, including runaway reaction, kinetic models.
  • New fuels: hydrogen, cryogenic fuels, oxyflames
