AbstractThe paper reports experiments employing the cloud chamber technique for creating fuel aerosols, in studies of premixed laminar flames. Spherical explosion flames were initiated at different times after the start of expansion of the original gaseous mixture to lower pressure.Flame speeds were measured close to atmospheric pressure, over a range of equivalence ratios of iso-octane, ethanol and hydrous ethanol with air. A methodology was developed for deriving mass burning velocities and entrainment velo…
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
