The diffusion flame process (fire) consists of three basic elements: fuel, oxygen, and heat. These basic components have been recognized in the science of fire protection for over years. The diffusion flame process is defined by Richard Tuve in the Principles of Fire Protection Chemistry as "a rapid self-sustaining oxidation process accompanied. The Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineer­ ing (ICASE) and NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) brought together on October , experts in the various areas of com­ bustion with a view to expose them to some combustion problems of technological interest to LaRC and possibly foster interaction with the academic community in these research areas.

Natural Gas Combustion General Natural gas is one of the major combustion fuels used throughout the country. It is mainly used to generate industrial and utility electric power, produce industrial process steam and heat, and heat residential and commercial space. Natural gas consists of a high percentage of methane (generally above. The current chapter presents the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for simulating the combustion process taking place in gas turbines. The chapter is based on examples and results from a series of applications developed as part of the research performed by the authors in national and European projects. There are envisaged topics like flame stability, pollutant emission prediction, and.

In a structure fire, multiple fuels are involved and with the limited air supply found in a compartment fire the result is an extremely complex chemical reaction. This chemical reaction yields the products of incomplete combustion or non-flaming combustion and heat.

Smoke is a byproduct of incomplete combustion. It has been the constant. In recent years fire science has made rapid progress due to the increase in research on the subject.

This book brings together state-of-the-art contributions on those aspects of fire within the engineering science ofcombustion. Written by leading experts, the book seeks to identify the role of fire in the spectrum of combustion s: 1.

The following topics will be discussed in this chapter: (1) properties of mixtures, (2) combustion stoichiometry, (3) heating values and enthalpy of formation, (4) adiabatic flame temperatures.

5 The Combustion Process Combustion is a chemical reaction of rapid oxidation started by the correct mixture of fuel, oxygen and an ignition source. The chemical reaction for natural gas is: CH4 + 3O2 = Heat + 2H2O + CO2 + O2 Where: CH4 = 1 cubic foot of Methane Gas (Natural gas) 3O2 = 3 cubic feet of Oxygen Heat = BTU's of energy produced from the chemical reaction.

FPETool (Software and Documentation) is a set of engineering nist-equations useful in estimating potential fire hazard and the response of the space and fire protection systems to the developing hazard.
