Experimental Device for the Study of Non-Premixed Turbulent Combustion
Contact : Toufik BOUSHAKI
This combustion chamber modeling an industrial furnace (or boiler) has been designed to study turbulent non-premixed natural gas-air flames. The burner is placed at the bottom in the center of the chamber and the flame develops vertically along the containment.
The burner is removable, so any type of burner can be used, laminar/turbulent, premixed/non-premixed.
Dimensions : 1.2 x 0.5 x 0.5 m3,
Coaxial swirl burner
The burner consists of two concentric tubes with a swirler placed in the annular part to rotate the oxidant. The central tube conveys the fuel to a radial injector with eight holes at the periphery.
Diagnostics : PIV, LDA, PLIF.
