By Jozef Jarosinski, Bernard Veyssiere

Broadly utilizing experimental and numerical illustrations, Combustion Phenomena: chosen Mechanisms of Flame Formation, Propagation, and Extinction presents a finished survey of the elemental strategies of flame formation, propagation, and extinction.

Taking you thru the levels of combustion, best specialists visually demonstrate, mathematically clarify, and obviously theorize on vital actual subject matters of combustion. After a old creation to the sector, they speak about combustion chemistry, flammability limits, and spark ignition. in addition they research counterflow twin-flame configuration, flame in a vortex middle, the propagation features of area flames, instabilities, and tulip flames. moreover, the booklet describes flame extinction in slender channels, worldwide quenching of premixed flames by means of turbulence, counterflow premixed flame extinction limits, the interplay of flames with fluids in rotating vessels, and turbulent flames. the ultimate bankruptcy explores diffusion flames in addition to combustion in spark- and compression-ignition engines. It additionally examines the transition from deflagration to detonation, in addition to the detonation wave constitution.

With a CD-ROM of pictures that fantastically illustrate a number of combustion phenomena, this booklet enables a pragmatic realizing of the procedures happening within the notion, unfold, and extinguishment of a flame. it's going to assist you in your approach to discovering recommendations to actual matters encountered in transportation, energy new release, business strategies, chemical engineering, and hearth and explosion dangers.

Example text

The ignorance of the radiation loss from the spark channel during the discharge may be reasonable, because the radiation heat loss is found to be negligibly small in the previous studies [5,6]. The amount of heat transfer from the flame kernel to the spark electrodes, whose temperature is 300 K, is estimated by Fourier’s law between the electrode surface and an adjacent cell. Specific heat of each species is assumed to be the function of temperature by using JANAF [7]. Transport coefficients for the mixture gas such as viscosity, thermal conductivity, and diffusion coefficient are calculated by using the approximation formula based on the kinetic theory of gas [8].

5 mJ and it is failed (which is known as misfire) at the lower ignition energy. The total mass increases rapidly just after the onset of spark discharge and then it decreases. After 100 μs, the total mass increases again with time in the case of success of ignition, while it decreases monotonically in the case of misfire. This means that when the mass of O radical that is formed during the spark discharge is sufficient, it increases after the end of the spark discharge by the chemical reaction, which results in the formation of the self-propagating flame.

The vertical components of the velocity remain uniform over a distance of about 10 cm. Lower down than this, near the tube centerline, they gradually start to decay, finally forming a secondary stagnation zone. At the same time, near the tube wall, the gas continues to flow down without any significant change of velocity. 4 Thermal Structure PIV velocity measurements made it possible to evaluate the flame temperature field [23], following the method demonstrated in Ref. [25]. 7. The differences between the structures of lean limit methane and propane flames are fundamental.
