  • 24 September 1971
An examination of the relative merits of burning at high and low temperatures leads to new proposals for designing future combustion systems for particular purposes so as to minimize pollution andExpand

Maximizing ion-driven gas flows
Gas flows of modest velocities are generated when an organized ion flux in an electric field initiates an ion-driven wind of neutral molecules. When a needle in ambient air is electrically charged toExpand

A burner for mixtures of very low heat content
WE must anticipate a growing demand in the future for the means to burn low grade fuels, and fuel/air mixtures which may not even be normally flammable. Upcast gases from coal seams, ventilation airExpand

Burners Producing Large Excess Enthalpies
The principle of heat recirculation in combustion systems is analyzed for the case where no direct mixing of reactants and products occurs. The concept leads to a general treatment, the restrictionExpand

Electrical control of gas flows in combustion processes
The theory of the ionic wind is developed for flame ions travelling towards electrodes of various configurations so that entrainment as well as main stream gas velocities can be predicted. It isExpand

Maximum ion currents from flames and the maximum practical effects of applied electric fields
The maxima limiting all practical effects of the movement of flame ions in electric fields are shown to depend on the current densities available. The theory of the electric field and space chargeExpand

Electrical control of particulate pollutants from flames
Following the demonstration that growth and deposition of flame carbon can be controlled by applied electric fields, the object of the present study is to extend this principle to particulateExpand
