Flameless combustion is a combustion regime which results in drastically lower 𝑁𝑂𝑥 emissions. 𝑁𝑂𝑥 has been found to influence global warming through its interactions with ozone chemistry and, exposure to this gas has been found to have adverse health effects on humans. The jet-in-hot-coflow design...

This thesis covers the experimental characterisation of a multi-nozzle research combustor capable of achieving flameless combustion (FC). The combustor is operated with methane as fuel and air as the oxidiser, under an overall lean equivalence ratio ranging from 0.6-0.9. The work focused on designing and applying different experimental...

Desypris, Georgios (author)
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...

Future transport and energy systems will still rely on gas turbines for energy conversion. The contribution of aviation to the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutant species is predicted to increase in the near future, both in absolute quantities as well as relative to other sources. Despite historically being one of the greatest...

Flameless combustion, also called MILD combustion (Moderate or Intense Low Oxygen Dilution), is a technology that reduces NO<sub>x</sub> emissions and improves combustion efficiency. Appropriate turbulence-chemistry interaction models are needed to address this combustion regime via computational modelling. Following a similar analysis to...

The Flameless Combustion (FC) regime has been pointed out as a promising combustion technique to lower the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) while maintaining low CO and soot emissions, as well as high efficiencies. However, its accurate modeling remains a challenge. The prediction of pollutant species, especially NOx, is affected by the...

Huang, X. (author)
The technique called "flameless combustion", also denoted as "MILD" combustion, was developed to reduce the nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission in the combustion process. The term "flameless" refers to the low visibility of the flame. The technique is particularly of interest when hot exhaust gas is used to preheat inlet air to high temperature. The...

Huijts, Melchior (author)
NOx emissions cause harm to the human body, the world around us and our atmosphere, both directly and indirectly. Flameless combustion is a combustion regime that has the potential to reduce these emissions by more than 95%. Operation in this regime is possible when lowering the availability of oxygen and lowering the combustion temperature in...

Since its discovery, the Flameless Combustion (FC) regime has been seen as a promising alternative combustion technique to reduce pollutant emissions of gas turbine engines. This combustion mode is often characterized by well-distributed reaction zones, which can potentially decrease temperature gradients, acoustic oscillations and,...

Mild combustion in a lab-scale furnace has been experimentally and numerically studied. The furnace was operated with Dutch natural gas (DNG) at 10 kW and at an equivalence ratio of 0.8. OH∗chemiluminescence images were taken to characterize the reaction zone. The chemiluminescence intensity is relatively low compared to conventional flames...

Emission prediction is a complex problem involving the coupling between the flow field and chemistry. Most of the time CFD is the preferred modeling approach, yielding predictions with varying degrees of accuracy. But because of a high computational cost, CFD investigations are often limited to the use of reduced chemical mechanisms. In this...

The phenomenon of turbulent spray combustion occurs in all industrial furnaces that consume liquid fuels. It is essential that a furnace is capable to have high efficiency and performance while the pollutant emissions meet the stricter national and international regulations. One of the recently proposed solutions to improve the aforementioned...
