Abstract:

This annual technical report summarizes Yale High Temperature Chemical Reaction Engineering Laboratory research activities under Grant AFOSR 91-0170 for the one-year period ending 14 February 1992. Among our research results described in detail in the cited references Section 5. Perhaps the most notweworthy are the development of Rl rational correction factors to account for the effects of suspended particle morphology on convective diffusion mass deposition rates R2 quantitative criteria for influence of particle thermophoresis on the structure of two-phase laminar counterflow diffusion flames potentially useful to predict IR radiation from such flames and optimize particle properties in synthesis applications R3 quantitative methods for predictingcorrelating the effects of particle inertia on thermophoretic deposition across laminar boundary layers on targets with streamwise curvature experimentally verified by our seeded micro-combustor experiments on concave ribbon targets 15 presentations and 2 PhD dissertations have resulted from this research program. Copies of 3 reprints appearing during this period are included in the Appendices Section 6 of this report.
