Nonsteady flame propagation by George H Markstein( Book )

15 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonsteady Flame Propagation : AGARDograph, Vol. 75 by George H Markstein( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonsteady Flame Propagation provides information pertinent to flame propagation in gaseous media. This book focuses on linearized treatments and the comparison of their results with experimental observations.<br><br>Organized into nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of the challenge of nonlinear problems and examines the essentially nonlinear character of the flame phenomena, which has been artificially suppressed in analyses by the use of linearized perturbation treatments. This text then summarizes the development regarding rocket-shaped burners. Other chapters consider the adva

Correlations for smoke points and radiant emmision of laminar hydrocarbon diffusion flames by George H Markstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transfer of energy by thermal radiation plays a dominant role in controlling the rate of growth and spread of fire. Because most of the radiant emission from fires is normally due to the presence of soot particles in the flame, a detailed knowledge of soot formation is necessary if flame radiation is to be predicted, rather than obtained from empirical measurements in large turbulent fires. This need for a fundamental understanding of radiant emission and its relationship to soot formation requires the study of small laminar diffusion flames
Heterogeneous reaction processes in metal combustion by George H Markstein( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper deals primarily with the case of vapor-phase burning. Heterogeneous reaction of metal vapor and oxygen (and possibly of volatile oxide species) may take place at the surface of growing oxide smoke particles, in competition with homogeneous gas-phase reaction followed by condensation. The relative importance of the heterogeneous and homogeneous reaction paths is currently the subject of some speculation and controversy. In this connection, a knowledge of the collision efficiency of the heterogeneous reaction was of considerable interest. For the Mg - O2 reaction, an average collision efficiency of 0.075 was previously derived but this value cannot be regarded as very reliable. Results obtained by a recently developed method indicate larger values, probably exceeding 0.3. The mechanism of the reaction of metal vapor and oxygen at the oxide surface is unknown. However, from analogy with chemisorption and catalysis at oxide surfaces, it is found that electron transfer plays an important role, and, under some conditions, may become rate-controlling. Observations of luminescence and of anomalous electron emission during reaction of Mg vapor and oxygen at the oxide surface have provided evidence for electronic excitation in the oxide layer
Scanning-radiometer measurements of the radiance distribution in PMMA pool fires by George H Markstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transfer of energy by thermal radiation plays a dominant role in controlling the rate of growth and spread of fire. The present work was undertaken for dealing with the problem of measuring nonuniformly distributed and fluctuating radiative emission of thermal radiation by fires. A scanning radiometer was developed that provides complete maps of averged distributions of radiance, as well as statistical data that characterize the radiance fluctuations. Measurements on polymethul methacrylate pool fires performed with this device are reported

Rate of growth of magnesium oxide deposits formed by surface reaction of magnesium vapor and oxygen by George H Markstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rate of increase of the thickness of MgO deposits growing by heterogeneous reaction of Mg vapor and O2 was measured. The deposits were formed on metal mirror surfaces that were prepared by vapor deposition of gold on glass slides. Interference fringes observed in sodium light were recorded photographically at time intervals suitable for measuring the rate of deposit growth. Under the conditions of the majority of the present experiments, the growth rates were found to be diffusion-controlled. Under these conditions, a lower limit of 0.07 was computed for the collision efficiency with respect to magnesium concentration. Preliminary experiments in the transition region between diffusion and chemical control indicate a highly collision efficiency, probably exceeding 0.3. (Author)
