Mechanical Engineering

Ignition and combustion behaviors were observed for pulverized coal particles which were suspended in a laminar upward flow and were heated by a single pulse Nd : YAG laser. The surface temperature of the particles was estimated to increase at a rate of about 106K/s. For a bituminous coal, observations with high-speed video revealed that the coal particles ignited heterogeneously 1-2ms after the laser pulse operation and this was followed by the evolution of volatile materials and their combustion in the gas phase. A rate constant of surface oxidation reaction of the bituminous coal at a temperature range ...
