Abstract:

Ignition and flameholding in nonequilibrium plasma cavity flows. Objectives Further studies of cavity ignition and flameholding by repetitive nsec pulse plasmas in fuel injection flows hydrogen and hydrocarbons High frame rate 10-20 kHz NO and OH PLIF imaging of ignition process using burst mode laser Increasing flow velocity beyond 100 msec, operating at low global equivalence ratios Comparison with kinetic modeling calculations using reduced plasma chemical ignition mechanism. Plasma flameholding mechanism after ignition -- thermal or not Outcome Demonstration of true predictive capability of the model.
