Description This book provides an introduction to understanding combustion, the burning of a substance that produces heat and often light, in microgravity environments-i.e., environments with very low gravity such as outer Edition: 1. At the Third International Microgravity Combustion Workshop, we presented a preliminary experimental plan and proposed an apparatus to study the combustion of a PolyMethylMethAcrylate (PMMA) sphere at reduced gravity. In this paper, we describe the experimental hardware in detail, summarize our observations since the last workshop, and describe. Abstract. A classification of combustion processes is presented which can be used for discussing influences of microgravity. Profound effects of gravity on combustion arise from the large fractional density changes that generally are associated with combustion. thus it seems to be rather the rule than the exception that combustion experiments under microgravity conditions reveal .
Most of the recent research was described at the Third International Microgravity Combustion Workshop held in Cleveland in In early research, the burning velocity or lity limit was measured in microgravity. Most recent work on these fundamental topics can be seen in Refs. 7 and 8 in which a closed vessel was used. The book edited by Ross in reported on the works especially funded by NASA and Bellan reported on numerous configurations including drops, streams, shear and mixing layers, jets and sprays. Studies on combustion in microgravity have also been conducted in Japan, and more recently in China, and are also documented in the literature. Combustion.

For thirty years the NASA microgravity program has used space as a tool to study fundamental flow phenomena that are important to fields ranging from combustion science to biotechnology. This book assesses the past impact and current status of microgravity research programs in combustion, fluid dynamics, fundamental physics, and materials. Flame propagation experiments on n-decane spray were performed in microgravity to investigate theflame propagation mechanism of a spray for less volatile the spray was dispersed into an acrylic propagation tube with an inner diameter of 62 mm and a length of mm, about 5 s were required for a quiescent spray to form under conditions of microgravity. Comparison of Fig. 1, Fig. 2 shows that, with the same level of diluent composition, the oxidizer-side dilution cases show a larger variation in both flame radius and temperature compared with fuel-side dilution cases. This can be explained by the spherical configuration under study. The outer boundary of the flame is fixed at the temperature and composition of the ambient gases.
