Gaseous fuels are easy and convenient to handle and are fast gaining popularity. Most of the naturally occurring resources and the synthesized gases consist of one or more of the gases methane, carbon monoxide and hydrogen as the primary combustible constituents. The calorific value of the gaseous fuels vary over a wide range from 3 to 100 MJ m−3; however, the relative combustion properties are more influenced by combinations of various fuels and thermal and transport properties of individual gas components.
