|Outline of Research at the Start
The present research will investigate the turbulent flame propagation and extinction behaviors and mechanisms of pure NH3, pure solid particle cloud, and solid particle cloud/NH3 hybrid mixture.Based on this study, first, the interaction mechanism between solid particle cloud combustion and gaseous ammonia combustion in co-combustion will be proposed and validated. Then, turbulent flame extinction limits and mechanism in co-combustion will be clarified. The findings of this research would help our society transition to a carbon-neutral, safety-production society.
|Outline of Annual Research Achievements
In this fiscal year, research was smoothly progressed.
First, experiments on turbulent flame propagation and extinction on pure ammonia combustion and particle cloud/ammonia co-combustion were separately conducted.
Second, comparison between pure ammonia combustion and co-combustion was finished. It was found that volatile matters from particles have an important effect on turbulent flame propagation and extinction of co-combustion. When ammonia equivalence ratio is lower than unity, the volatile matter enhances flame stability. However, in ammonia rich cases, it has negative effect.
Third, turbulent flame propagation and extinction mechanisms were proposed to understand the phenomena.
|Current Status of Research Progress
Current Status of Research Progress
2: Research has progressed on the whole more than it was originally planned.
First, in the proposed plan, turbulent flame propagation and extinction experiments should be finished in this fiscal year. This point was progressed smoothly. Further, part of the data comparison was finished. One paper was published in one top journal in combustion field. The turbulent flame propagation and extinction mechanisms were proposed. Moreover, the data on turbulent flame extinction of pure particle cloud combustion is in analysis.
Second, the analytical solution and chemical reaction analysis are in progress to understand the chemical reaction coupling between ammonia combustion and volatile matter combustion.
Third, the laser diagnostic experiments are in preparation for the validation of the turbulent flame propagation and extinction mechanisms.
|Strategy for Future Research Activity
First, in the next fiscal year, more experiments will be conducted to understand the particle size and concentration effect on turbulent flame propagation and extinction phenomena. One journal paper will be published based on the analysis.
Second, the analytical solution and chemical reaction analysis will be conducted to understand the effect of volatile matter on co-combustion phenomenon.
Third, the validation experiments on the turbulent flame propagation and extinction mechanism will be conducted in the next fiscal year.
Fourth, the principle investigator will join several international conferences for the discussion of the results.
