Nonpremixed flame control with microjets

Nonpremixed flame control with microjets The hydrodynamic control of buoyant nonpremixed flames is investigated by injecting high-momentum fluid through a central microjet. The resulting flame characteristics are mapped for jets of different strengths. The flame height decreases linearly with an increase in the microjet Froude number as the flow changes from a buoyancy-dominated to a momentum-controlled regime. The flame luminosity is reduced by injecting stronger microjets. The jets alter the flame structure by establishing strong entrainment of the ambient air from the quiescent surroundings. The introduction of an inert species as the microjet fluid has a similar qualitative effect as air. Microjet assistance is as effective as partial premixing for reducing the flame height and luminosity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals

Abstract

The hydrodynamic control of buoyant nonpremixed flames is investigated by injecting high-momentum fluid through a central microjet. The resulting flame characteristics are mapped for jets of different strengths. The flame height decreases linearly with an increase in the microjet Froude number as the flow changes from a buoyancy-dominated to a momentum-controlled regime. The flame luminosity is reduced by injecting stronger microjets. The jets alter the flame structure by establishing strong entrainment of the ambient air from the quiescent surroundings. The introduction of an inert species as the microjet fluid has a similar qualitative effect as air. Microjet assistance is as effective as partial premixing for reducing the flame height and luminosity.
