INVESTIGATING THE CHARACTERISTICS OF IGNITING A STREAM OF HOT GASES BY COUNTER STREAMS,
FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY DIV WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OHIO
Presented are results of experimentally investigating the stabilization of flame of a homogeneous gasoline-air mixture by counter air and methane-air streams. Established were zones of stable combustion at a changed coefficient of surplus air in the combustion mixture and pressure in the nozzle, as well as empirical formulas showing the dependence of dimensional characteristics of the stream upon the change in relative mass velocities of the stream and basic stream and pressure in the nozzle. It is shown, that theoretical calculation of flame stabilization curves coincides sufficiently well with experimental data.
