Emissions and Heat Transfer in Combustion Systems

  • Y. Daisho


A variety of combustion systems that employ turbulent diffusion combustion have been major sources of air pollutants such as NOx, particulates and hydrocarbons in spite of their high thermal efficiency compared to other types of combustion systems. For diffusion combustion systems, including compression-ignition or diesel engines and industrial furnaces, increasingly stringent emission regulations have been imposed to improve air quality in urban areas in the largest cities. In addition, associated with the recent issues of the global warming and energy conservation, a reduction in emissions is urgently required along with minimizing fuel consumption. This necessitates better understanding of the emission formation mechanism in real combustion systems.
