Abstract This article provides a comprehensive review of the spray combustion of fast pyrolysis bio-oil (FPBO, also called bio-oil, pyrolysis oil or pyrolysis liquid biofuel), which is widely regarded as one of the most economically feasible renewable resources to facilitate the replacement of fossil oils. The utilization of FPBO as a fuel is challenging due to its unique atomization and combustion characteristics but it is important given the need to develop a more sustainable energy infrastruc...

Abstract An experimental and numerical study on the combined effect of N2/CO2 dilution and hydrogen addition on the laminar burning velocity (LBV) of methane-oxygen mixtures was conducted. The experiments were performed at atmospheric conditions using the heat flux method for effective equivalence ratios (ϕF) varying from 0.7 to 1.3. The results show that the hydrogen addition causes an increase in LBV for all the mixture conditions. The variation in LBV based on hydrogen addition parameter (RH)...

Abstract The influence of the viscous boundary layer on the oblique detonation wave structure has been simulated and analyzed by solving the two-dimensional Navier–Stokes equations containing the hydrogen/air elementary reaction model. It is found that the effect of the viscous boundary layer can be neglected in the smooth transition initiation structure, but not in the abrupt transition initiation structure. The interaction of the lateral shock wave and the viscous boundary layer results in the...

The detonation combustion phenomenon is supersonic combustion process and follows on thermal explosion in combustor. Deflagration to detonation transition occurs in detonation tube due to pressure oscillation in PDE combustor, which is driven by acoustic combustion phenomena in detonation tube. As this combustion process has great significance role for future propulsion system, the present objective is to investigate the effect of modify ejector having half angles of α = (− 4°, 0°, + 4°) on deto...
Abstract To reduce complications in calculations of mole fractions of combustion products, adiabatic flame temperature and burned gas properties, a simplified calculation of combustion products is proposed in this work. 6 major gas species are considered in burned gas. 6 governing equations are reduced to a fourth degree polynomial equation and it is referred to as quartic combustion model (QCM). The calculations of adiabatic flame temperature, thermodynamic properties and transport properties o...

Abstract In radiation process, a variety of models can be used to represent the spectral radiative properties of combustion gases. In coal combustion, the high level of soot concentration brings higher complexity to the formulation. Several pieces of research are found, comparing different radiation models usually applied to idealized laboratory situations. Only a few works explore the behavior of such models in real scale applications, such as coal-fired furnaces. Comparisons among different ar...

Abstract In the present study, spray cooling heat transfer characteristics were numerically investigated under the heat flux ranging from 50 to 170 W/cm2. Effect of nozzle height and spray pressure was also studied in order to reveal the microscopic mechanisms of the heat transfer enhancement from single-phase to nucleate boiling regions. A two-phase flow heat transfer model was adopted based on the Euler-Lagrangian approach. The dependence of thermo-physical properties of fluid on the temperatu...
Abstract Producer gas is a renewable fuel obtained from gasification processes. This fuel may be burned directly in furnaces to supply thermal demands, or used to run internal combustion engines or gas turbines. The characteristics of producer gas have been studied by various authors, however, most studies generally use mixtures of synthetic gases to represent Producer Gas. The main goal of this study is to evaluate the laminar flame velocity of Producer Gas obtained from gasifying eucalyptus wo...

Abstract It is widely accepted that the particulate matter emissions of a diesel engine may be substantially reduced when a blend of diesel and biodiesel fuels is used. Here we propose a phenomenological model aimed at evaluating the extent of soot formation and oxidation in a diesel engine fueled with diesel-biodiesel blends and providing a better understanding of these processes. These blends are represented by three hydrocarbon functional groups: aromatic, aliphatic, and ester fuels, in diffe...
