As a result, the combustion reaction and the burning efficiency are improved, thus suppressing the formation of PM and unburned hydrocarbons.
It has already been pointed out that in addition to the smoke-free characteristic, the low LHV of PODE also enables the possibility to utilize the injection event to control the combustion reaction rate, which has been thoroughly discussed in the authors' previous study [19].
Generally, the porosity is related with permeability through polynomial relations, it also changes within the combustion reaction. For simplicity, we consider isotropic porous medium with constant porosity and simplified combustion reaction: C + [O.sub.2] [right arrow] C[O.sub.2].
To address some of these issues Altun et al., (2004) has looked into the burning characteristics of coal briquettes from a combustion kinetics point of view and suggested that the coal briquettes ignition and the efficiency and effectiveness of combustion reaction was considerably dependent on the binder type, amount of binder agent and water addition [4].
When lit, the steel wool undergoes a combustion reaction with oxygen gas in the air.
1 with oxygen in the flame proceeds according to the generalized combustion reaction
The technology is added to vehicle fuel to affect the combustion reaction, reducing the amount of fuel consumed and levels of emissions.
Now the combustion reaction is hot enough to start a tire in kindling.
The heat from the combustion reaction increases the oxidation rate of the PM inside the DPF, resulting in regeneration.
Also, of great importance today, we have the smoke which is generated and is made up of particulates that are derived from the combustion reaction.
In addition, the gas-solid two-phase combustion reaction in combustion and heat-transmission science discovered that the specific surface of solid particles, which influences the rate and extent of the reaction, provides a contact surface and reaction area for combustion reaction.
