51 Eddings, Eric G.; Sarofim, Adel F.Thermal behavior of a high-energy material immersed in a fireOne of the uncertainties in the calculations of time-to-explosion for containers of high-energy materials immersed in fires is that of the thermal boundary at the container-explosive interface. Understanding this interface is critical in evaluating risks, safety issues and prevention mechanisms. In ...2004
52 Pershing, David W.Control of NOx emissionsNITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) are produced in combustion from molecular nitrogen (thermal NOx) or from oxidation of nitrogen contained in the fuel (fuel NOx). Production of NOx in a turbulent diffusion flame is largely dependent upon fuel composition and fuel/air contacting, which for liquid fuels is determ...Staged heat release; Tunnel furnace; Boiler simulator; Staged combustion1980
53 Eddings, Eric G.; Sarofim, Adel F.Modeling benzene and naphthalene formation in a premixed propylene flameThe Utah Surrogate Mechanism was used to model a fuel-rich, non-sooting premixed laminar flame of propylene at 5000 Pa with an equivalence ratio of 2.32. The simulation results were found to be satisfactory in comparison with the experimental data. For example, the measured concentration profiles of...Utah Surrogate Mechanism; Propylene; Combustion modeling; Benzene formation; Naphthalene formation2005
54 Pershing, David W.; Wendt, Jost O. L.Pulverized coal combustion: the influence of flame temperature and coal composition on thermal and fuel NOxA laboratory combustor was used to investigate the factors that influence the conversion of fuel nitrogen in coal during coal combustion. Fuel NO was isolated by experimentation utilizing Argon / Oxygen / Carbon Dioxide mixtures as the oxidant, and care was taken to compare cases with air at matche...Fuel nitrogen; Flame temperature; Coal composition1977
55 Eddings, Eric G.; Sarofim, Adel F.Fast cook-off tests reportThe Center for the Simulation of Accidental Fires and Explosions (C-SAFE) at the University of Utah is focused on providing science-based tools for the numerical simulation of accident scenarios involving fires and high-energy devices (Pershing, 2000). The initial computational efforts are concentra...Heat flux; Heat transfer; Cookoff tests; Center for the Simulation of Accidental Fires and Explosions; C-SAFE2003
56 Eddings, Eric G.; Sarofim, Adel F.Experimental study of burning rate in jet-fuel pool firesExperiments were carried out in a 30 cm diameter pool fire, for both transient and steady-state conditions, utilizing jet fuel, Norpar-15, and a surrogate mixture of hydrocarbons that simulates jet-fuel behavior in a pool fire. Steady state pool fire tests match previous results well. The transient ...Pool fires; Jet propulsion fuel; Norpar-152004
57 Pershing, David W.Mechanisms of NOx formation and control: alternative and petroleum-derived liquid fuelsPetroleum-, coal- and shale-derived liquid fuels were burned in a downfired tunnel furnace to assess the impact of fuel properties on the formation and control of NOx emissions. A nitrogen-free oxidant mixture (Ar, C02 , 02) was used to isolate fuel NOx formation. Under excess air conditions fuel N...Exhaust emissions; Alternative fuels; Petroleum-derived liquid fuels1981
