Sooting behavior in temperature-controlled laminar diffusion flames☆

  title={Sooting behavior in temperature-controlled laminar diffusion flames☆},
  author={A. Ferreira Gomez and George W. Sidebotham and Irvin Glassman},
The sooting tendency of gaseous and liquid hydrocarbon fuels has been determined systematically in an axisymmetric laminar diffusion flame whose temperature was controlled by nitrogen dilution. Sooting tendency was measured by the minimum mass flow rate of fuel (FFM) at the smoke height. Results, plotted as log 1/FFM versus l/T, where T is a calculated adiabatic flame temperature, show that fuel structure plays a significant role in diffusion flames. Comparison of these flame results with basic… CONTINUE READING
