Continued Analysis of Freely Propagating Dimethyl Ether Cool Flames
The analysis of cool flames is a relatively brand new study to the field of combustion science. Despite their discovery 200 years ago, there is minimal research and information on cool flames. Cool flames have been found to be linked to engine knock experienced in internal combustion engines. Engine knock is likely caused by early ignition of gases in the chamber, and since cool flame ignition has been found to precede hot flame ignition, it is a plausible explanation for engine knock. Well established data profiling cool flames may be the key to engine design that eliminates the chance for ...
