The Effect of Conjugate Heat Transfer on Soot Formation Modeling at Elevated Pressures
Previous attempts to model elevated-pressure coflow laminar flames have been hindered by neglecting the preheating within the burner, caused by downward heat transfer to the burner. In the presentExpand

Application of PAH-condensation reversibility in modeling soot growth in laminar premixed and nonpremixed flames
Abstract A new model for condensation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) on the surface of soot particles is developed based on the reversibility of the process. Statistical mechanics hasExpand
