Turbulent Flame Propagation Characteristics of High Hydrogen Content Fuels

Performer: Georgia Tech Research Corporation

Project No: FE0004555

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will improve the understanding of turbulent flame propagation characteristics of high hydrogen content fuels. Improved knowledge of flame propagation enables predicting combustion dynamics and improved large eddy simulation capabilities which will lead to hydrogen combustor designs that produce less emissions at higher heating rates. Specifically, this project will gather data using optical flame emission for mixtures that simulate syngas fuels and systems using exhaust gas recirculation that will improve physics based models of turbulent burning rates.
