52 N 2 . 16) are used. 5 At a given temperature, value of Kp may be calculated and using the above three equations, values of a to c may be determined. The iterative procedure outlined is then used to obtain the adiabatic flame temperature. For methane-air combustion at atmospheric pressure, considering the dissociation of CO2, the adiabatic flame temperature is obtained as 2232 K. 4. Chemical Kinetics The knowledge of the rate at which a combustion reaction takes place is essential in order to ensure that the reactants stay inside the combustion chamber for a sufficiently long enough period of time, known as the residence time, within which the combustion reaction would be completed.

On the other hand, if internal energy is specified to be a constant, then entropy assumes a maximum value. If neither S nor U is constant, then for the constant volume system at equilibrium, both S and U together adjust such that the quantity (U – TS) assumes a minimum value. This quantity is a derived property called Helmholtz free energy (A), A = U – TS, or a = u – Ts, where a, u and s are specific properties. Following the definition of enthalpy, defined using a constant pressure process, (H = U + pV), another free energy, called Gibbs free energy (G), may be defined as, G = A + pV = U + pV – TS = H – TS, or g = h – Ts.

It is thus important to understand the physics of different types of flames that are likely to occur in such burners. In this chapter, homogeneous flames, which involve gaseous fuel and oxidizer, and heterogeneous flames, which involve condensed fuels such as liquid and solid fuels, are described. Their characteristics, physical processes and controlling factors, such as temperature, pressure, equivalence ratio and oxygen concentration, are presented in detail. 1. Premixed Flames [1, 2, 5, 7, 11, 12] In an isolated system, when the fuel and oxidizer are mixed in proper proportions and ignited using a localized high temperature source, sustained reaction may take place.
