An Experimental Study of Soot Formation in Dual Mode Laminar Wolfhard-Parker Flames
(Virginia Tech, 1998-04-09)
An experimental study of sooting characteristics of laminar underventillated ethylene non-premixed flames in hot vitiated environments was performed using a modified Wolfhard-Parker co-flowing slot burner. The burner could ...
Passive Scalar Measurements In Actively Excited Free Shear Flows
(Virginia Tech, 1998-08-17)
The objectives of this study were to implement a system to measure mixing in nonreacting flows and to study the mass transfer characteristics of two actively excited turbulent jets. This thesis describes the acquisition ...
The transport and remote oxidation of compartment fire exhaust gases
(Virginia Tech, 1994-02-15)
<p>The majority of deaths and injuries in compartment fires result from inhalation of the toxic gas, carron monoxide (CO), especially in locations remote from the burning compartment. This causes the transport and oxidation ...
An experimental study of controlled gas phase synthesis of nanosize TO2 powders
(Virginia Tech, 1994-10-04)
<p>Recently there has been an increased interest in the generation of ceranlic powders composed ofnanosize particles with a narrow size-distribution and high purity. It has been shown that ceramics sintered from these ...
A study of interactions between laminar flames and walls
(Virginia Tech, 1993-08-10)
A basic study on the convective flame-wall heat transfer in diesel engines was performed with a fundamental experiment and simplified theoretical models. Based on the concept of flame tubes, a combustor was designed and ...
