Abstract

The “Group Combustion” experiment is planned as the first combustion experiment in the KIBO on the ISS. Flame spread characteristics of n-decane droplet clouds and linear array will be investigated in detail. The experiment will employ the Multi-purpose Small Payload Rack (MSPR), the Chamber for Combustion Experiment (CCE), and the Group Combustion Experiment Module (GCEM) as experimental apparatus. At present, development of the GCEM has been on-going in parallel to detail planning of the experiment operation onboard the KIBO. In this paper, current status on preparation of the experiment will be introduced.
