  • Regimes of Unstable Expansion and Diffusion Combustion of a Hydrocarbon
           Fuel Jet
    • Authors: V. V. Lemanov; V. V. Lukashov; R. Kh. Abdrakhmanov; V. A. Arbuzov; Yu. N. Dubnishchev; K. A. Sharov
      Pages: 255 - 263
      Abstract: Results of an experimental study of hydrodynamics and diffusion combustion of hydrocarbon jets are presented. Various regimes of instability development both in the jet flame proper and inside the source of the fuel jet are considered. The experiments are performed for the case of subsonic gas jet expansion into the air from a long tube 3.2 mm in diameter in the range of Reynolds numbers from 200 to 13 500. The fuel is the propane–butane mixture in experiments with a cold jet (without combustion) and pure propane or propane mixed with an inert dilutant (CO2 or He) for the jet flame. The mean velocity and velocity fluctuations in the near field of the jet without combustion are measured. Among four possible regimes of cold jet expansion (dissipative, laminar, transitional, and turbulent), three last regimes are investigated. The Hilbert visualization of the reacting flow is performed. The temperature profiles in the near field of the jet are measured by a Pt/Pt–Rh thermocouple. An attached laminar flame is observed in the transitional regime of propane jet expansion from the tube. In the case of combustion of C3H8 mixtures with CO2 or with He in the range of Reynolds numbers from 1900 to 3500, the transitional regime is detected in the lifted flame. Turbulent spots formed in the tube in the transitional regime exert a significant effect on the flame front position: they can either initiate a transition to a turbulent flame or lead to its laminarization.

  • Classification of Similarity Criteria in Combustion Theory and the Problem
           of Autoignition of a Combustible Mixture by Compression
    • Authors: V. S. Babkin; P. K. Senachin
      Pages: 275 - 283
      Abstract: The dynamic problems of the theory of combustion and explosion are classified from the point of view of competition of the characteristic times of bulk chemical reaction, frontal combustion, heat transfer, gas flow from the vessel, compression (motion of the piston), and heating (cooling) rate. We consider dynamic similarity criteria such as the ratio of the characteristic times in problems of classical thermal explosion, dynamic thermal explosion, flammability limits, combustion in communicating vessels, competition of frontal and volumetric combustion, autoignition by adiabatic compression, competition of frontal combustion and piston motion, as well as compound similarity criteria (such as functions of simple dynamic similarity criteria). The problem of autoignition of a mixture by compression is considered, and a method for obtaining an analytical solution of the problem and an algorithm for the approximate solution based on a special differential criterion are proposed.

  • Natural Buoyant Turbulent Diffusion Flame near a Vertical Surface
    • Authors: E. S. Markus; E. A. Kuznetsov; A. Yu. Snegirev
      Pages: 284 - 293
      Abstract: The structure and dynamics of a natural buoyant turbulent diffusion flame near a vertical surface with combustible gas exhaustion are numerically studied by using the FDS model and computer code. The flame is considered near the surface through which gaseous propylene is injected with a prescribed flow rate. Requirements are determined for the grid cell size in the near-wall region, which ensure sufficient spatial resolution of the boundary layer structure. It is shown that the predicted value of the total heat flux at the surface agrees with the measured results. Investigations of ignition and combustion of a vertical plate of non-charring thermoplastic (polymethylmetacrylate) with allowance for the material pyrolysis reaction show that the ignitor parameters determine the duration of the transient period, but weakly affect the growth of the heat release rate and the height of the pyrolysis region at the stage of developed burning. Significant effects of the ignitor shape, size, and temperature, as well as lateral entrainment of air on the velocity of the upward flame spread rate over the plate surface and on the shape of the pyrolysis front are revealed. The existence of critical parameters of the ignitor separating flame decay from developed burning is demonstrated. Three flame spread regimes with different pyrolysis front shapes are identified.

  • Spatial Structure of a Reacting Turbulent Swirling Jet Flow with
           Combustion of a Propane–Air Mixture
    • Authors: D. K. Sharaborin; D. M. Markovich; V. M. Dulin
      Pages: 294 - 300
      Abstract: Results of an experimental study of the spatial structure of a reacting flow during combustion of a propane–air mixture in a turbulent swirling jet escaping into atmospheric air are presented. The fuel-to-air equivalence ratio is φ = 0.7, and the Reynolds number of the jet is Re = 5 · 103. The time-averaged spatial distributions of velocity, local density, and concentrations of the main species of the gas mixture are measured in low-swirl and high-swirl flows. In both cases, the flame front is stabilized in the internal mixing layer formed by the axial region of jet retardation, where hot combustion products are concentrated. In a high-swirl flow, the temperature distributions in the cross section y/d = 0.5 show that the region with the maximum temperature of the gas is located at the periphery of the central recirculation zone. Moreover, in the case of a high-swirl flow, there exists a recirculation zone at the axis, and the CO2 concentration is twice higher than in a low-swirl jet. The opposite situation is observed for O2.

  • Simulation of Characteristics of Condensed Products in a Combustion
    • Authors: V. A. Babuk; N. L. Budnyi; A. N. Ivonenko; A. A. Nizyaev
      Pages: 301 - 308
      Abstract: The principles of computational determination of the characteristics of both coarse and fine fractions of condensed combustion products formed at the propellant surface and evolving as part of the multiphase flow in the combustion chamber. The characteristics of condensed products at the propellant surface are determined by modeling the processes involved in their formation using a decision-making system based on an expert system approach. An evolution model for non-one-dimensional flow with the mutual influence of the characteristics of condensed and gaseous combustion products is developed to determine the characteristics of condensed products in the multiphase flow of combustion products. The developed tools allow the characteristics of condensed products to be determined depending on the propellant composition, characteristics of the propellant grain, and combustion chamber parameters. Parametric analysis of the developed models was performed for combustion chamber conditions.

  • Experimental Study on Pyrolysis of Black Non-Charring Polymers in the
           Reduced-Pressure Environment
    • Authors: R. Zong; R. Kang; Y. Zhi; C. Liu
      Pages: 309 - 315
      Abstract: A series of experiments on a black non-charring polymer in the low-pressure chamber is conducted under different external heat fluxes. The surface and bottom temperatures and the mass loss of the sample are measured. A parameter T p is introduced to describe the impact of pressure on the surface temperature. There is a loose layer of the char residue left with significant pyrolysis bubbles under the low heat flux, and the bubble size decreases with pressure. The parameter T p is found to exhibit a significant decline trend with increasing pressure, and the mass loss rate of the sample decreases apparently as the pressure increases. However, under a high heat flux, the char residue is denser, and the pyrolysis bubbles are not observed. The value of T p and the mass loss rate of the sample have no obvious relationship with pressure. The average pyrolysis rate is linearly proportional to p a .

  • Influence of Activated Carbon on the Thermal Decomposition of
           Hydroxylammonium Nitrate
    • Authors: M. K. Atamanov; R. Amrousse; K. Hori; B. Ya. Kolesnikov; Z. A. Mansurov
      Pages: 316 - 324
      Abstract: This paper presents experimental results for the thermal decomposition of hydroxylammonium nitrate (HAN) in the presence of activated carbon with a high specific surface (up to 3000 m2/g) obtained by activation of rice husk with potassium hydroxide at a temperature of 700°C in a rotating spherical furnace. The addition of activated carbon reduces the temperature of the onset of decomposition of HAN from 185 to 86 ± 0.5°C. The burning rate of HAN doped with activated carbon increases to 400 mm/s at an overpressure of 6 MPa. It has been shown that the addition of activated carbon reduces the amount of NO x gases produced by decomposition to 30%.

  • Ignition of Particles of Wet Woody Biomass under Convective Diffusion of
           Water Vapor in the Near-Wall Region
    • Authors: G. V. Kuznetsov; V. V. Salomatov; S. V. Syrodoy
      Pages: 325 - 336
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of an experimental and theoretical study of heat and mass transfer during ignition of wet wood particles in a high-temperature gas medium. Experiments were carried out in a setup which provides conditions similar to the combustion spaces of boiler units. The main heat transfer parameters (ambient temperature) and integrated ignition characteristics (ignition delay) were measured. The measurement error of these parameters did not exceed 18%. The convective transfer of water vapor formed during evaporation of pore moisture and pyrolysis products were found to have an insignificant effect on the ignition characteristics and conditions. From the results of the experiments, a mathematical model of the ignition process was developed which describes the simultaneous occurrence of the main processes of thermal preparation under conditions of intense phase (evaporation of water) and thermochemical transformations (thermal decomposition of the organic part of the fuel, thermochemical interaction between water vapor and carbon coke, ignition of volatiles) taking into account the convective diffusion of water vapor and pyrolysis products in the near-wall gas area during the induction period. The theoretical ignition delay is in satisfactory (within the confidence interval) agreement with the experimental value. The numerical model of the diffusion flame adequately (good agreement between experimental and theoretical ignition delays) describes the ignition of a wet wood particle.

  • Modernization of Air-Blown Entrained-Flow Gasifier of Integrated
           Gasification Combined Cycle Plant
    • Authors: A. F. Ryzhkov; N. A. Abaimov; I. G. Donskoi; D. A. Svishchev
      Pages: 337 - 344
      Abstract: The high efficiency of a combined cycle and the availability of systems for deep purification of syngas before combustion allow for the study of combined-cycle gas turbines as a promising solution to increase the efficiency and environmental friendliness of coal power engineering. The key element of the device is a gasifier. A Mitsubishi Heavy Industries gasifier is selected as an initial design for modernization, which consists in heating the blast air up to 900°C and supplying vapor with a temperature of 900°C. The impact of modernizing the gasifier characteristics is determined by using zero-, one-, and three-dimensional models. The modernization of the gasifier allows increasing the thermal power by the syngas and cold gas efficiency from 77.2 to 84.9% and increasing the ratio H2/CO from 0.34 to 0.6.

  • Study of Ignition of High-Energy Materials with Boron and Aluminum and
           Titanium Diborides
    • Authors: A. G. Korotkikh; V. A. Arkhipov; K. V. Slyusarsky; I. V. Sorokin
      Pages: 350 - 356
      Abstract: This paper describes the ignition of high-energy materials (HEMs) on the basis of ammonium perchlorate and ammonium nitrate and an energetic binder, containing the powders of Al (base composition), B, AlB2, AlB12, and TiB2, upon initiation of the process by a CO2 laser in the heat flux density range of 90–200 W/cm2. The ignition delay time and surface temperature of the reaction layer during the heating and ignition of HEMs in air are determined. It is obtained that the complete replacement of a micron-sized aluminum powder by amorphous boron in the composition of HEMs significantly reduces the ignition delay time of the sample (by 2.2–2.8 times) with the same heat flux density, and this occurs due to the high chemical activity of and difference between the mechanisms of oxidation of boron particles. The use of aluminum diboride in HEMs reduces the ignition delay time by 1.7–2.2 times in comparison with the base composition. The ignition delay time of the HEM sample with titanium diboride decreases slightly (by 10–25%) relative to the ignition delay time of the base composition.

      Abstract: Combustion tests of a ramjet model 1.05 m long and 0.31 m in diameter with an expanding annular combustor operating in the regime of detonation combustion of hydrogen are described. The tests are performed in a short-duration wind tunnel at free-stream Mach numbers of the incoming air flow from 5 to 8 and stagnation temperature of 290 K. Continuous detonation and longitudinally pulsating regimes of hydrogen combustion with characteristic frequencies of 1250 and 900 Hz, respectively, are observed. The maximum measured values of the fuel-based specific impulse and the thrust generated by the engine are 3600 s and 2200 N, respectively.

  • Triggering Detonation in an Annular Flow Chamber
    • Authors: D. V. Voronin
      Pages: 364 - 369
      Abstract: The Navier–Stokes equations were used to carry out the numerical modeling of chemically reactive gas flow in an annular flow chamber. The model was based on laws of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy for nonstationary two-dimensional compressible gas flow in the case of axial symmetry with a tangential component of the gas velocity. Viscosity, thermal conductivity, and turbulence were taken into account. Fuel and oxidizer were fed into the chamber separately, and heat release in the chemical reaction zone was largely determined by the rate of turbulent mixing of the gas components. The possibility of burning out of the mixture in the chamber was demonstrated numerically. Detonation failure can occur if reagents temporarily cease to be fed into the chamber, which can be caused by high pressure in the reaction zone. With short combustion chamber lengths, there are the underburning of fuel and the release of unreacted hydrogen into the atmosphere.

           Oil Refining
    • Authors: K. Yu. Vershinina; S. Yu. Lyrshchikov; P. A. Strizhak
      Pages: 376 - 384
      Abstract: Results of an experimental study of conditions and characteristics of ignition of fuel slurries prepared on the basis of typical waste products of coal washing and oil refining are reported. The main attention is paid to analyzing the differences in the characteristics and conditions of ignition of organic coal–water slurries prepared on the basis of coal washing waste products (nonbaking, coking, low-caking, fat, gas, and flame coals are considered). The ignition delay time and the minimum (threshold) temperature of ignition of the examined slurries are estimated. Conclusions on the influence of the properties and concentrations of the slurry components on the combustion initiation characteristics are formulated.

  • Estimation of the Maximum Efficiency of a Heat Recovery Burner
    • Authors: I. A. Terletskii
      Pages: 16 - 19
      Abstract: Estimates are obtained for the maximum efficiency of a system consisting of a heat recovery burner connected to an ideal Carnot heat engine. The burner serves as a heater of the ideal heat engine, and the cold side is at the ambient temperature. Combustion products heat the hot wall of the ideal engine and then transfer heat to the combustible mixture supplied to the combustion chamber. Recovery of the heat of the combustible mixture occurs through the heat-conducting wall of a countercurrent heat exchanger, in which the combustion products and the combustible mixture move toward each other in the channels connected by a heat-conducting partition. An estimate is obtained for the total efficiency of the system, which is defined as the ratio of the net power of the ideal engine to the chemical energy flux reaching the burner device. It is shown that the total efficiency of the system can approach the Carnot-cycle efficiency with the maximum possible temperature of the hot side of the ideal heat engine.

  • Mathematical Modeling of the Combustion of an Overfueled Aluminum–Air
           Mixture Based on the Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics of the Process
    • Authors: A. Yu. Kryukov; V. I. Malinin
      Pages: 35 - 46
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of mathematical modeling of the combustion of flow of a multifractional suspension of an aluminum powder in air taking into account the nonequilibrium nature of the process. The calculations were performed for air-to-fuel ratios α = 0.1–0.5. Time dependences of thermodynamic parameters, the completeness of metal particle combustion, and the relative residence time of the fractions in the flow were obtained. The adequacy of the nonequilibrium model for describing thermodynamic processes was validated by comparing with the equilibrium model for time tending to ∞. The necessity of taking into account the formation of Al2O suboxide present in the range of the air-to-fuel ratio is analyzed and proved. The need to include nitriding reactions in the mathematical modeling for 0.1 ≤ α < 0.4 is shown by comparing the results of calculations based on equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermodynamics.
