Abstract China has huge potential on biogas resources and the distributed energy system (DES) based on micro gas turbine provides an effective way for biogas utilization. In this work, turbulent combustion characteristics in the combustor of micro gas turbine for DES were numerically and experimentally studied, and the effect of carbon dioxide content in biogas on the turbulent flame was mainly analyzed. Turbulent flames structures of natural gas and three kinds of biogas under various equivalen...

Abstract Heavy oil coking is an important process for in situ combustion. The coking characteristics of two low-asphaltene heavy oils from Fengcheng (FC) and Hongqian (HQ) oilfields, which are different in viscosity, density, and composition, were studied in a fixed bed reaction system in pyrolysis and oxidizing atmospheres. FC heavy oil showed a 35% higher coke yield than HQ heavy oil, and the coke oxidation activity was worse, whereas the coke elemental compositions and heat values were simila...

Abstract During spray combustion, the complex oxidizing atmosphere makes the direct experimental investigation of droplet evaporation and combustion challenging. Within this study, the effects of water vapor as well as the compositions of oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere on the single isolated droplet combustion were experimentally investigated using a high-speed digital camera. An in-house made piezoelectric droplet-on-demand generator was employed to reproducibly generate single isolated ...

Abstract We present a multi-scale computational approach to model the gas-phase chemical kinetics for Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) of WSe2 using W(CO)6 and H2Se as gas-phase precursors. This framework combines Quantum Mechanical (QM) methods based on Density Functional Theory (DFT), ReaxFF-based reactive molecular dynamics, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to efficiently model the gas-phase physiochemical processes leading to WSe2 growth in a cold-wall horizontal MOCVD c...

Abstract This study investigates a laminar premixed flame interacting with cold gas jets, at different cooling jet mass flow fractions ( m ˙ j e t * ) and diluent types, namely air and N2. A novel burner and wall configuration is used to experimentally induce flame-cooling-air interaction (FCAI). Flame chemiluminescence imaging, exhaust temperature (Texh) and exhaust CO emissions ([CO]exh) measurements are conducted to characterise the flame shape and [CO]exh response to the cooling jets. Flame ...

Abstract Biochar (BC) is a solid byproduct of gasification and could be valorized looking for contributing to the feasibility of gasification projects. In this study, the effect of airflow during fixed-bed gasification of pelletized fallen leaves to BC was evaluated at 0.075 and 0.150 kg/s/m2. The influence of glycerol in the leaf feedstock was also studied, and the gasification products were characterized. BC formation under gasification conditions was simulated using a two-dimensional (2D) uns...

Abstract The conversion characteristics of a single particle with high porosity moving in a high temperature O2/CO2 atmosphere were simulated to complement the particle conversion sub-model. Considering the significant changes in the pore structure of high porosity particles, the effects of the high porosity (0.5–0.9) on conversion process were investigated. According to the experimental studies, two different types of char structures were considered for the particles with different porosity to ...

Abstract Energy crisis and environment pollution have made engines fueled with natural gas getting more and more attention, but practical engines fueled with natural gas often suffer from low engine power output and thermal efficiency. In this study, with addressing the role of late high-pressure injection, engine performance and flame propagation were studied in a high compression-ratio optical engine fueled with methane under lean combustion condition. First, the experiments with different exc...

Abstract A two-phase multiple mapping conditioning/large eddy simulation (MMC-LES) model for turbulent flames with solid fuel pyrolysis is derived, numerically implemented and tested. A hybrid approach is used that consists of an Eulerian LES, a stochastic filtered density function method with MMC closure and an inertial Lagrangian fuel particle scheme. A simultaneous interphase heat and mass transfer model with conserved scalar Spalding transfer numbers and localness in mixture fraction space m...

Abstract In the present study, combustion phenomenon and heat transfer in a three-dimensional rectangular porous radiant burner are numerically studied. Methane-air mixture with five-step reaction mechanism is used to model the combustion process inside the porous matrix. Because of the non-local thermal equilibrium between solid and gas phases, separate energy equations for each of them are numerically solved. Besides, the discrete ordinates method is used to solve the radiative transfer equati...
