Effect of endothermic reactions on the global extinction strain rate of large hydrocarbon fuels
When a hydrocarbon fuel is used as a coolant, the extreme environment can have a significant impact on the fuel composition. Heat exchange occurs through phase change, sensible heat extraction, and endothermic reactions experienced by the liquid fuel. From previous studies it has been demonstrated that the fuel composition changes significantly as well as the fuel properties as a result of the endothermic reactions. To investigate the effect of endothermic reactions on the fundamental flame behavior we have developed a counterflow flame burner that can measure the flame extinction strain rate ...
