Diffusion and reaction in a stagnant boundary layer about a carbon particle, part 7: Transient behavior and effect of water vapor

Authors


Abstract

The dynamics of carbon combustion is studied. It is shwon that the carbon particle will not ignite if the furnace temperature is below a certain critical value. In addition, carbon particles display thermal instabilities which can be delayed or eliminated by increasing the water vapor concentration and/or the furnance temperature.
