Abstract:Numerical studies on 1-D, non-sooting counterflow diffusion flames were performed to determine the precision with which the total heat release rate can be calculated using light emission, namely, chemiluminescence, from the reaction zone. A detailed reaction mechanism, incorporating sub-reaction models for excited state radicals (CH* and OH*, where * denotes the excited state), was employed in this study. A set of 1-D, steady state conservation equations was solved under standard atmospheric conditio…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
