52 Karlstrom, Oskar; Brink, Anders; Hercog, Jaroslaw; Hupa, Mikko; Tognotti, LeonardoKinetic combustion parameters for chars using to IFRF solid fuel data base2009In this study, kinetic combustion parameters are determined for chars in the IFRF solid fuel data base (SFDB) in order to model the combustion history of the chars. Experimental burn-out data are used to determine the kinetic parameters that best fit the experimental data according to two standard c...
53 Jansohn, PeterInvestigations_about_Co_firing_of_gasified_herbaceous_biomass_in_an_integrated_gasification_combined_cycleThis paper focuses on combustion tests which were conducted to investigate the flame stability when product gas of biomass gasification is mixed with natural gas (NG) and subsequently burned in gas turbine (GT) combustors. Especially the product gas component H2 can alter the combustion properties o...
54 Zieba, M.; Schuster, A.; Scheffknecht, G.The influence of the gas composition on ammonia-to-Nox conversion during flameless combustion of low calorific value gases2009Flameless oxidation (FLOX®) technology has already demonstrated great potential in reducing thermal NOx while burning natural gas [1-3]. However, the tests with biogenous fuels have shown a limited ability to reduce NOx, where most of the NOx emissions are related to the fuel-bond nitrogen [4,5]. D...
55 Daviault, Stephane G.; Matida, Edgar A.; Ramadan, Omar B.; Hughes, Patrick M.Investigation of the spray characteristics of a twin fluid atomizer using LSI and PDA2011-08-30The purpose of this paper is to fully characterize an industrial twin fluid swirl atomizer through the use of laser based measurement techniques. The atomizer used in this study was manufactured by Delavan and features three air swirl inlets onto the main fluid core located in a mixing chamber withi...

60 Seebold, James G.Combustion efficiency of industrial flares revisited the current status of this multivariate, multiphysics, multichemistry morass and what to do about it2011Last year, with its focus on "Industrial Flaring," TOTeM361 was the first in the IFRF TOTeM series to tap into an area which has been explored in AFRC Symposia for many years.2 Taking place 30 September - 1 October at the Sheraton Maui immediately following the AFRC 2010 Pacific Rim Combustion Sympo...
61 Martin, MatthewComparison of empirically based calculation methods for pipe flares to computational fluid dynamics2007As available computational resources increase and the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) becomes more widely accepted wider classes of industrial scale combustion systems are being simulated and optimized using these resources. A largebody of empirically based work has already been assembled ...
62 Desam, Padmabhushana R.; Smith, Philip J.; Borodai, Stainslav G.; Kumar, SeshadriComputing flare dynamics using large eddy simulations2004Computing the dynamics of flares is motivated by the increased need for efficient and safe flaring of unwanted gases during hydrocarbon and petrochemical processing. To understand the unsteady flame shape dynamics, Large Eddy Simulations (LES) are used to study natural gas flares in the presence of ...
63 Mueller, Gary R.; Agrawal, Harshit; Caico, Chris; Olivacce, RonaldCombustion of mixtures: A modified IFC approach2011While most studies on flares have been done with single hydrocarbon fuels or binary mixtures, the reality of most industrial flares is that they see different mixtures of many gases. Over the past 5 years the International Flare Consortium (IFC) has been conducting research on just this issue. In a ...
64 Chambers, Allan K.; Wootton, Tony; Moncrieff, Jan; McCready, PhilipCombustion efficiency of full scale flares measured using DIAL technology2004Flares are used in Alberta's oil and gas industry to safely treat H2S containing gas releases during emergencies, and gas well flow tests and as a means of disposing of gases that cannot be recovered economically. Despite the wide use of these flares, little data exists on the combustion efficiency ...
65 Duck, BrianComputational fluid dynamic modeling of a ground flare2007A major ethylene plant underconstruction in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia found itself under pressure from neighboring facilities and regulatory agencies to reduce flare emissions, flame visibility, and noise. Plant personnel contacted a company that had pioneered and commercialized a grade mounted, multi...
66 Smith, Philip J.Computing flame dynamics using massively parallel computers to span scales from the atomistic to the industrial2004
67 Schmitt, DavidCorrectly modeling and calcutating combustion efficiencies in fired equipmentFired equipment includes furnaces, fired heaters, fired boilers, supplementary fired boilers, and many other types of equipment. But for the purposes of reviewing how the calculations are accomplished and other factors that may affect the results of the modeling, we will use a fired reformer furnace...

69 Smith, Joseph D.; Suo-Anttila, Ahti; Smith, Scot K.; Modi, Jay B.Evaluation of the air-demand, flame height, and radiation from low-profile flare tips using ISIS-3D2007Low-profile flare fields pose significant design challenges including elongated flames, adequate air supply to burner tips located on inner rows and high radiation flux from the flame to the surrounding wind fence. Recent work completed by engineers at Alion Science and Technology for Zeeco, Inc. ha...
70 Foley, C. W.; Chterev, I.; Seitzman, J.; Lieuwen, TimFlame configurations in an annular swirl burnerThis paper describes an experimental investigation of flame configurations in a swirling, lean premixed combustor. The flame configuration or stabilization location within the combustor has important influences upon a variety of combustor performance metrics, such as combustion instability limits an...
