Research and small-scale tests have indicated that combustion of trash fires can be improved through burning the trash in pits with optimized geometry. In order to investigate the potential to create a cleaner way to burn trash, these small-scale tests must be scaled up. Potential benefits to burning trash in a pit instead of on open ground include reductions of burn injuries, increased rate of burning which would lead to less exposure to harmful smoke, and an increase in burn efficiency which would reduce the amount of harmful particulates in the smoke. Our project created a large-scale experimental set-up to effectively investigate the effect of pit geometry on the combustion of trash.
