Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe effects of pressure and gravity on the sooting characteristics and flame structure of coflow methane-air laminar diffusion flames between 1 and 60 atm were studied numerically. Computations were performed by solving the unmodified and fully-coupled equations governing reactive, compressible flows which include complex chemistry, detailed radiation heat transfer and soot formation/oxidation. Soot formation/oxidation was modeled using an acetylene-based, semi-empirical model which was verifie…
