Single ethanol droplet evaporation characteristics were studied under premixed CH4/air flame conditions via experimental and numerical approaches. In the experimental part, an ethanol droplet with an initial diameter between 20 and 70 μm was injected through a flat laminar stagnant flame. Visualization of the flame front and temporal monitoring of the droplet evaporation at high temperatures up to 2200 K were conducted using planar laser tomography. Velocity measurements indicated that the droplets were small enough to be carried by surrounding gas with a very small slip velocity. Variation in droplet diameter was tracked through the flame via ILIDS and showed to be more drastic in burnt gases. Hence, vaporization rates were reported at burnt gas temperature which is affected by the heat losses from flame to the stagnation plate due to the change in the temperature profile. In the numerical part, single droplet evaporation under constant temperature and stagnant environment was considered with the Spalding model using the YALES2 solver. The variations of the droplet properties were computed under N2 atmosphere and under flame conditions. At elevated conditions, the flame temperature had a more dominant effect on the evaporation rate rather than the burnt gas composition.

Thermal characterization and model-free kinetics of biodiesel sample
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2015-11-01)
In this study, combustion and pyrolysis behaviours of methanol route biodiesel were investigated using thermal analysis techniques known as simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) at different heating rates. Reaction regions, peak temperatures, mass loss and heat flow rates of the biodiesel sample are determined using TG-DTG and DSC data. It was found that as the heating rate of the reactions increased, peak temperatures of the reactions shifted higher temperatures, implyin...
Investigation of Droplet Flame Interactions through Experimental and Numerical Approaches
Kaya Eyice, Deniz; Yozgatlıgil, Ahmet; Aksel, M. Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2023-1-12)
Spray combustion applications involve complex phenomena such as atomization, droplet vaporization, mixing, turbulence, chemical kinetics, and the interaction of these processes. In two-phase combustion, one of the fundamental processes is the interaction of a single droplet with a flamelet. Therefore, it is essential to understand the physics of isolated droplet evaporation and its effects on the flame front to study more complex flames. The aim of this study is to investigate droplet evaporation, flame ch...
Diffusion Resistances and Contribution of Surface Diffusion in TAME and TAEE Production Using Amberlyst-15
Doğu, Timur; Boz, Nezahat; MÜRTEZAOĞLU, KIRALİ; DOĞU, GÜLŞEN (2003-01-01)
Effective diffusivities and adsorption equilibrium constants of methanol, ethanol and 2-methyl-2-butene (2M2B), in Amberlyst 15, were evaluated from batch adsorption experiments. Moment expressions derived for different models involving diffusion resistances in the macropores and within the gel-like micrograins were used for the evaluation of effective diffusion coefficients. Contribution of surface diffusion to diffusion flux within the macropores was found to be quite significant. Also, it was found that ...
Kinetic analyses of the effects of temperature and light intensity on growth, hydrogenm production and organic acid utilization by rhodobacter capsulatus
Sevinç, Pelin; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
Effects of temperature and light intensity on photofermentative hydrogen production by Rhodobacter capsulatus DSM1710 by use of acetic and lactic acids as substrates were studied. Experiments were conducted at 20, 30 and 38oC incubator temperatures under light intensities in the 1500 – 7000 lux range. pH of the medium and quantity of hydrogen forming together with quantity of biomass, and concentrations of acetic, lactic, formic, butyric and propionic acids in the medium were determined periodically. Growth...

Pure and Mg(2+) & F(-) doped nano hydroxyapatites (HA) were synthesized by a precipitation method and sintered at 1100 degrees C to investigate their densification and structure. Different amounts of Mg(2+) and F ions were doped in to HAs. X-ray diffraction was used to identify the presence of phases And lattice parameters of HA and tri-calcium phosphates (TCP) present in the samples. Densification of HA was improved by the addition of these ions. In most of the doped samples, beta-tri-calcium phosphate (TC...
