Classic theories of combustion rely upon the principle that the maximum temperature attainable in a reaction is predicted by the adiabatic equilibrium temperature. In certain burner configurations, however, the maximum temperature may locally exceed this value by a significant amount due to heat recirculation, which has led to the concept of superadiabatic combustion. A striking aspect of this type of combustion is a broadening of the limits of flammability due to the accelerating effect of temperature increa…
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.
