About this book


Combution phenomena in practical applications are too complicated to understand quantitatively in terms of the intrinsic fundamental processes. This is why many academic investigations have been of little use in the design or improvement of practical combustion systems. During the last decade, experimental methods for obtaining local and instantaneous infomation have been developed. Also, modeling techniques, particularly those by numerical simulation have become promising. With these points as background, a special research project on "Dynamic Modeling and Laser Diagnosis on Combution" has been carried out from 1983 through the 1985 fiscal year, under a Grant-in-Aid from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Japan. The research has focused on developing laser diagnostics and modeling techniques which could be useful for analyzing the details of processes in practical continuous and intermittent combution sysytem. More than sixty members from about thirty universities and a national laboratory joined in this project, covering mechanical, chemical, physical, electronics and computation researches. Members were divided into five subject groups: (1) Velocity measurments, (2) Spray and soot measurments, (3) Temperature and species concentration measurments, (4) Premixed combution modeling, and (5) Diffusion combution modeling. Besides group meetings, general meetings have been held twice every year and symposia were held six times during the period to promote the research project.
