High-Pressure Turbulent Flame Speeds and Chemical Kinetics of Syngas Blends with and without Impurities

Performer: Texas Engineering Experiment Station

Project No: FE0011778

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will improve the understanding of how turbulent flame speeds vary for high hydrogen content (HHC) fuel blends. Understanding turbulent flame speeds of HHC fuels in the presence of likely contaminates allows hydrogen combustor designs that produce fewer emissions at higher temperatures. Specifically, this project will utilize both flame speed and shock tubes test facilities to obtain fundamental combustion data relevant for chemical kinetics modeling to assess the impact of likely impurities and validate kinetics sub-mechanisms for each impurity at realistic ranges of mixture composition, stoichiometry, and pressure.
