Adiabatic Reverse Combustion in a Packed Bed

  title={Adiabatic Reverse Combustion in a Packed Bed},
  author={Marzie Fatehi and Massoud Kaviany},
Downward propagation of a combustion front in a packed bed of wood particles, with air supply from below, is examined theoretically and experimentally. Using a single-step reaction, with a kinetic model of char oxidation as the dominant mechanism, and assuming local thermal equilibrium, but allowing a local chemical nonequilibrium between the solid and gas phases, the front speed u F, the adiabatic temperature T r, and the extent of solid consumption ( p ) 7 / ( p )s are determined as functions… CONTINUE READING
