April, 00 Fundamentals of Gas Conbustion #4 Premixed Flame Characteristics Adiabatic Flame Temperature ==> determined by thermodynamics Flame Speed ==> determined by chemical kinetics Ideal Flames (stoichiometric) for methane CH 4 + 2 O 2 ==> CO 2 + 2 H 2 O 2 moles of O 2 to balance C in CO 2 and H in H 2 O: F/O = 0.5 (stoichiometric!) for ethane C 2 H 6 + 3.5 O 2 ==> 2 CO 2 + 3 H 2 O 3.5 moles of O 2 to balance 2C in CO 2 and 3H in H 2 O: F/O=0.286 stoichiometric! Adiabatic flame temperature and product species are calculated from thermo- chemical codes, PEP, Edwards, NASA-Lewis, etc. Actual methane flame products CH 4 + 2 O 2 ==> 0.42 CO 2 + 1.46 H 2 O + 0.58 CO + 0.27 H 2 + 0.35 OH + .… Actual ethane flame products C 2 H 6 + 3.5 O 2 ==> 0.81 CO 2 + 2.12 H 2 O + 1.19 CO + 0.42 H 2 + 0.59 OH + . ...

April, 00 Fundamentals of Gas Conbustion #5 Adiabatic Flame Temperature Calculation Adiabatic implies H = 0. Therefore, for a reacting system: n i H i = n i H i reactants products where H i = H fi + c pi dT T o T f Substituting and taking the reactants at T o , the initial temperature n i ( H fi + c pi dT T o T f ) = n i H fi products reactants Now, solve for T f . T f depends on H f of both reactants and products; the number of moles of both reactants and products; and the heat capacities of products only.

April, 00 Fundamentals of Gas Conbustion #6 Adiabatic Flame Temperature Calculation For example, For methane CH 4 + 2 O 2 CO 2 + 2 H 2 O and for ethane C 2 H 6 + 3.5 O 2 2 CO 2 + 3 H 2 O Products and O 2 are very similar for both fuels, the main variations being in the n i and H f of the fuel. Therefore, the T f values depend primarily on H f of the fuel. Gas
