Flowfield modeling and diagnostics
Abstract
A comprehensive text devoted to flowfield modeling and diagnostics is presented. Theoretical combustion aerodynamics is discussed, including turbulent chemically reacting multicomponent mixtures, the cylindrical polar coordinate version of the governing equations, integral properties and the swirl strength, turbulence models and the effect of swirl, combustion simulation, alternative fuels, and pollutant prediction. Predictive techniques are addressed, including theoretical design and development, simplified approaches, scaling and modeling criteria, axisymmetric swirling boundary layer and recirculating flows, and fully threedimensional flows. Experimental diagnostic techniques are considered, including velocity measurement, temperature, pressue, density, species concentration, and particle and droplet size distribution. Problem and progress areas are examined, such as pollutant emission, oxides of nitrogen and sulfur emission, smoke particulate emission and heat recovery, alternative fuels, and theoretical and experimental applications.
