  1. 1. Numerical study of flame dynamics

    Author : Arkady Petchenko; Vitaly Bychkov; Leonid Kagan; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; combustion; Direct Numerical Simulation DNS ; turbulence; flame-vortex interaction; flame acceleration; flame-acoustic interaction; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Modern industrial society is based on combustion with ever increasing standards on the efficiency of burning. One of the main combustion characteristics is the burning rate, which is influenced by intrinsic flame instabilities, external turbulence and flame interaction with walls of combustor and sound waves.

  2. 2. Modeling Auto-Ignition, Flame Propagation and Combustion in Non-Stationary Turbulent Sprays

    Author : Anders Karlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : auto-ignition; transient; flame propagation; turbulence; spray formation; prediction; stirred reactor approximation; model; reduced chemistry; combustion;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on detailed numerical studies of spray formation, auto-ignition, envelope flame development and combustion in a simple two-dimensional axi-symmetric geometry. A Lagrangian -- Eulerian formulation is used to analyze the droplet motion and gas flow field. READ MORE

  4. 4. Flame Dynamics and Deflagration-to-Detonation Transition

    Author : Damir Valiev; Börje Johansson; R. J. M. (Rob) Bastiaans; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; flame; premixed; instability; fractal; deflagration; detonation; DDT; simulation; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Various premixed flame phenomena are studied by means of direct numerical simulations of the complete system of hydrodynamic equations. Rigorous study of flame dynamics is essential for all premixed combustion problems where multidimensional effects cannot be disregarded.The present thesis consists of six parts. READ MORE

  5. 5. Theoretical and Experimental Investigations of Nonlinear Flame Instability

    Author : Li-Zheng Ma; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : nonlinear hydrodynamic instability; flame propagation and stretch effects; shock induced flame instability; tulip flame formation; interface tracking; the Schlieren technique; level set approach;

    Abstract : Flame instability is both important and difficult to understand. Mechanisms of instability are complex, because instability often involves an interaction between several different physical phenomena, such as an unsteady chemical reaction, unsteady flame propagation generating an unsteady flow, acoustic waves or shock waves.
