Deflagration and Detonation Deflagration: • Subsonic, typically 1 m/s and 7 to 10 bar starting at ambient pressure Detonation: • Supersonic • High pressure shock front ahead of the reaction zone (i.e. flame) • Adiabatic compression – gas autoignites • Average pressure 15 to 19 bar (lean), 25 to 30 bar (stoichiometric) • Typical peak pressure up to 50 bar (but see later)File Size: KB.   Next, we focus on the chemical reaction effects on the jets with a premixed hydrogen–air mixture injection. The results reveal that the shock-induced combustion develops into a detonation, inducing numerous vortices behind the combustion wave, while the combustion in the mixing layer cannot be preserved due to the instability of the.

For mixtures of fuel and air, propagation of flames is sustainable within a composition range between the so-called lean and rich flammability limits.

Many mixtures dis­ play a marked increase in the value of the upper limit as the initial mixture pressure is increased above atmospheric. Concurrently, the lower limit can be expected to decrease.

The effect of hydrogen admixing on self-ignition of homogeneous and hybrid mixtures of heavy hydrocarbons in air is studied theoretically based on the detailed reaction mechanism of n-decane oxidation. Reactivity of hydrogen-containing mixtures is not always higher than that of pure hydrocarbon–air mixtures.

5. Self-ignition of hybrid hydrocarbon (drops) – hydrogen – air mixtures. The reaction mechanism of Section 2 was then used to study the effect of hydrogen addition on the self-ignition delay time of hybrid hydrocarbon drops–hydrogen–air mixtures. The calculations of ignition and combustion of such mixtures were performed using DROP by: Simulations indicate that hydrogen can successfully cause self-ignition of propane-air mixtures in catalytic micro-channels with a mm gap size, eliminating the need for startup Criteria for self-ignition of supersonic hydrogen-air mixtures book.
