RADIATIVE TRANSFER IN COMBUSTION PHENOMENA AFFECTED BY RADIATION
Following from: Radiative transfer in combustion systems
Leading to: Radiative transfer in laminar flames; Radiative transfer in turbulent flames; Radiative transfer in combustion chambers; Radiative transfer in two-phase combustion; Thermal radiation in unwanted fires
A number of physicochemical phenomena encountered in combustion systems are influenced by radiation. Some of the phenomena such as ignition of solids, burning velocity, flammability, extinction, flame quenching, flame spread, etc., have been recognized for some time (Gaydon and Wolfhard, 1979), while others such as the effect of radiative transfer on the flame structure itself have not been discussed in combustion textbooks (Williams, 1985; Kuo, 1986; Turns, 2000). For example, in diffusion flames, the flame structure depends on the energy release, rates of transport of fuel and oxidizer, and rates of heat transfer to the flame front. H ...
