  2. 2. Residential biomass combustion - emissions of organic compounds to air from wood pellets and other new alternatives

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Socialantropologiska institutionen, Stockholms universitet

    Author : Maria Olsson; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Burning; methoxy¬phenol; benzene; stove; ecolabel; oats; wheat straw; firewood; boiler; hydrocarbon; smoke; peat;

    Abstract : It is important to increase the use of biofuels for residential heating in order to decrease the use of fossil fuels and their impact on global warming. The smoke from the combustion of biomass contains a large number of compounds, which to varying degrees can affect the environment and human health. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hygroscopic Properties of Aerosols from Open-Air Burning and Controlled Combustion of Biomass

    University dissertation from Division of nuclear physics, Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Jenny Rissler; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cloud condensation nuclei; H-TDMA; CCN; hygroscopic growth; Teknik; internal and external mixture; CLAIRE; SMOCC; Physics; Fysik; Environmental chemistry; Technological sciences; Miljökemi; tandem differential mobility analyzer; slash and burn; Amazon; Biomass burning; combustion; Fysicumarkivet A:2005:Rissler;

    Abstract : The major uncertainty in predicting the influence of human activities on global climate change is the effect of aerosols. Two physical properties of aerosols largely controlling their influence on climate are the particle number size distribution and the interaction of the particles with the surrounding water vapor.

  4. 4. Turbulent burning, flame acceleration, explosion triggering

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysik

    Author : V'yacheslav Akkerman; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Turbulent combustion; flame acceleration; detonation explosion triggering; direct numerical simulations; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : The present thesis considers several important problems of combustion theory, which are closely related to each other: turbulent burning, flame interaction with walls in different geometries, flame acceleration and detonation triggering.The theory of turbulent burning is developed within the renormalization approach.

  5. 5. Laminar Burning Velocity and Development of a Chemical Kinetic Model for Small Oxygenated Fuels

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysik

    Author : Moah Christensen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oxygenated fuels; Kinetic mechanism; Validation; Sensitivity; Laminar burning velocity; Heat flux method; Fysicumarkivet A:2016:Christensen;

    Abstract : The thesis work was performed with the aim of increasing knowledge and understanding of the combustion of oxygenated fuels and intermediates. This was accomplished in two steps: experimental measurements of the laminar burning velocity to expand current databases and development of a reaction mechanism. READ MORE
