Abstract Large outdoor fires are an increasing danger to the built environment. Wildfires that spread into communities, labeled as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, are an example of large outdoor fires. Other examples of large outdoor fires are urban fires including those that may occur after earthquakes as well as in informal settlements. When vegetation and structures burn in large outdoor fires, pieces of burning material, known as firebrands, are generated, become lofted, and may be car...

Abstract It has been predicted that several changes will occur when premixed flames are subjected to the extreme levels of turbulence that can be found in practical combustors. This paper is a review of recent experimental and DNS results that have been obtained for the range of extreme turbulence, and it includes a discussion of cases that agree or disagree with predictions. “Extreme turbulence” is defined to correspond to a turbulent Reynolds number (ReΤ, based on integral scale) that exceeds ...

Abstract Lignin, as a renewable bioresource, has been widely explored in cellulosic biofuel and several other industries. There are limited applications of lignin in the energy industry, especially in rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors, even though tremendous research work has been done regarding the use of lignin in these fields. It is vital to take lignin into consideration because its usage not only improves the performance of these devices but also reduces the cost, contributing to o...

Abstract Municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration plays an important role in waste treatment systems throughout the world, due to the advantages of fast volume reduction by 80–90%, heat recovery, and power generation. However, waste-to-energy (WtE) plants have low electrical efficiency of 15–25%, due to the low steam temperature and pressure used in order to minimize boiler deposition and corrosion problems. Undoubtedly, the high Cl-content in MSW is the reason for the severe corrosion problem. ...

Abstract Chlorinated and brominated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (ClPAHs and BrPAHs; XPAHs) are carcinogenic organic pollutants which are mainly produced and emitted from combustion processes. In some environmental matrices, XPAHs display similar toxic properties and even higher toxic equivalent quantities (TEQs) than dioxins. Understanding the sources and formation mechanisms of XPAHs is important for controlling their emissions and human exposure to these ubiquitous pollutants. Nevertheles...

Abstract The importance of graphene and its derivatives for “clean energy” applications became apparent over the last few years due to their exceptional characteristics, especially regarding electrical, thermal and chemical properties. In this review article we examine the recent progress and some of the challenges in the syntheses and modification of graphene-based materials, including energy storage applications as electrodes in Li-ion batteries (LIBs). Various synthesis routes have been used ...

Abstract Solar CO 2 /H 2 O splitting via two-step thermochemical cycles of metal oxides is a promising path for solar energy conversion to carbon-neutral, liquid hydrocarbons from virtually inexhaustible resources, water and (waste) carbon dioxide, with high theoretical efficiency potential. Cerium-based oxides have seen enormous interest and research efforts since they were proposed for this application, mainly due to their good stability at high temperatures and fast kinetics in redox reaction...

Abstract In this work, advanced technologies concerning warm gas carbon capture and hydrogen production from carbon-based fuels are reviewed, with a primary focus on the elevated-temperature pressure swing adsorption process coupled with the water gas shift reaction and in-situ CO 2 adsorption. Key progress in the development of adsorption kinetic models, study of adsorption mechanisms, synthesis of efficient CO 2 adsorbents, design and process optimization of adsorption/desorption reactors, and...

Abstract Cool flames play a critical role in ignition timing, burning rate, burning limits, engine knocking, and emissions in conventional and advanced combustion engines. This paper provides an overview of the recent progress in experimental and computational studies of cool flames. First, a brief review of low-temperature chemistry and classical studies of cool flames is presented. Next, the recent experimental and computational findings of cool flames in microchannels, microgravity droplet co...

Abstract Fouling in gas turbines is caused by airborne contaminants which, under certain conditions, adhere to aerodynamic surfaces upon impact. The growth of solid deposits causes geometric modifications of the blades in terms of both mean shape and roughness level. The consequences of particle deposition range from performance deterioration to life reduction to complete loss of power. Due to the importance of the phenomenon, several methods to model particle sticking have been proposed in lite...
