Flameless combustion technology has proved to be flexible regarding the utilization of conventional fuels. This flexibility is associated with the main characteristic of the combustion regime, which is the mixing of the reactants above the autoignition temperature of the fuel. Flameless combustion advantages when using conventional fuels are a proven fact.(More)
This paper performs calculations of the recirculation factor in simulations of a flameless combustion furnace with different percentages of oxygen in air (from 21% to 100% O 2). Results are compared with Magnussen's recirculation theory and show that when there are chemical reactions, the recirculation results are overpredicted. An alternative correlation(More)
This study suggests the equimolar mixture of Natural Gas (100% CH 4) and Synthesis Gas (40% H 2 + 40% CO + 20% CO 2) as an alternative to reduce hydrocarbons consumption and reduce pollutant emissions. As a key parameter to characterize this combustible mixture, the laminar burning velocity was studied based on numerical simulations and experimental(More)
