Hydrogen is a promising fuel for both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and being used as an energy carrier for renewable energy sources. The adaption of hydrogen instead of natural gas as a fuel in gas turbine combustors introduces additional challenges regarding flame stability. One instabilities is boundary layer flashback. This phenomenon...

Currently, the paper producing industry is a significant energy consumer and contributes to the excessive greenhouse emissions. In order to become carbon neutral by 2050, it is evident that the paper industry must become more sustainable as well. Most of the energy is consumed in the dewatering process. Therefore, optimizing this process is key...

In this thesis work, we strive to describe and apply the modelling methodology for simulating a turbulent jet diffusion flame stabilized behind a bluff body by applying flamelet generated manifold (FGM) model and steady diffusion flamelet model for predicting the pollutant emissions from the flame. The flame under consideration is a CH4/H2 (1:1)...

In reacting flows, detailed chemistry computations are usually avoided precomputing the thermochemical quantities as functions of a reduced set of variables such as the Flamelet Generated Manifold (FGM) approach[34]. Although it mitigates the calculations of detailed chemical mechanism, the memory requirement associated to store the lookup table...

Work is presented on a novel hybrid fs/ps two beam CARS application for spatiotemporal gas phase hydrogen thermometry, capable of sampling at a rate of 1 kHz. The aim of the research is to assess the feasibility of directly probing hydrogen for accurate temperature measurements in a combustion environment. Typically, nitrogen is used in applied...

This study presents the numerical modeling of boundary layer flame flashback in premixed tube burners with turbulent flow and high hydrogen content. The modeling approach is based on a RANS turbulence model and a flamelet combustion model using a flame surface density approach in combination with multiple turbulent flame speed correlations to...

The idea of using hydrogen as a medium for storing excess renewable energy is gathering momentum but to deliver, several technological advances are required. One of the main challenges is boundary layer flame flashback (BLF) as a key operability issue for low NO<sub>x</sub> premixed combustion of hydrogen-enriched fuels; thus design of tools to...

Flameless combustion, or MILD combustion is a technology that enables stable combustion with high efficiency while maintaining very low NOx and soot emissions. It is characterized by uniform heat flux and can be achieved when fuel and preheated oxidant jets are mixed into a strong recirculating flow. It is a complex process which combines...

As a contribution to the decarbonisation of domestic heating, the graduation project investigates the feasibility of the application of UV sensor technology for flame detection and flame monitoring in hydrogen-powered domestic gas boilers. The research includes empirical studies and an analytical approach to describe influences on the sensor...

Optical measurement techniques are widely used in fluid mechanics to measure quantities like velocity, vorticity, and temperature. They are usually non-intrusive visualization techniques that provide a major advantage by not influencing the flow properties. Most of the developed measurement techniques estimate vorticity by computing the...

Steel plants are one of the largest sources of waste heat. Waste heat recovery throughout the steelmaking process is not a new phenomenon. One of the sources of waste heat is found in the coke plant. Cokes are an essential part of steel production. During the coking process hot cokes are cooled down. Most coke plants in the world traditionally...

On all levels of rowing, a general rule is that you have to row together. Rowing together has no clear-cut definition. However, it is known that each rower has his or her own style, which can be registered in movement patterns and force curves. The big question is how to combine these individual styles such that the crew works together in the...

The efficient and clean combustion of liquid fuels is a fundamental requirement in the design of future energy systems. Simulation plays a more and more important role in the design of such burners. In this work the spray combustion simulation approach introduced by Ma (2016) is improved, and validated against the CORIA Jet Spray Flame database ...

Prediction of emissions from combustion systems is a complex problem involving the coupling between the flow field and chemistry. CFD analysis is the most commonly employed approach. However, it has the drawback that a very high computational cost prevents the use of detailed chemistry models. This master thesis, which focuses on NOx emissions,...
