Abstract: 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…
