Characteristic of Low Calorific Fuel Gas Combustion in Porous Burner by Preheating Air
The combustion characteristic of low calorific fuel gas was numerically investigated in porous burner by preheating air. Two-dimensional temperature profile, flame propagation precess, and CO reaction rate were analyzed detailly by preheating air, and compared with that of room air. The results showed that when the air is preheated, the combustion flame location locates to upstream, the maximum combustion temperature is higher than that of room air, and flame propagation velocity decreases.The CO oxidation reaction rate increases gradually with the radius distance increaing, but reaction region decreases. CO oxidation region guradually decreases and locates to the upstream with air preheating temperature increasing. Peaks of CO oxidation rate gradually change from two to one.
