INVESTIGATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF PRESSURE ON THE COMBUSTION OF ALPAGUT LIGNITE

2008-10-01
This research presents the combustion behavior of lignite under different reaction pressures. Lignite from Alpagut, Corum of Turkey was combusted in its run off mine (ROM) condition under three different pressure levels of 172, 345, 517 kPa (25, 50, 75 psi). Experiments were done in a fully controlled temperature regime in an isolated combustion tube that operated in coordination with a continuous gas analyzer. Combustion behavior of lignite under different pressures was characterized by effluent gas analysis method. The changes in the amounts of consumed oxygen, evolved carbon oxides as well as variations in the temperature were assessed. The combustion efficiency and effectiveness of lignite was evaluated in terms of thermal features, from the viewpoint of reaction kinetics and by the computation of instantaneous fuel consumption at critical points. It was seen that combustion of lignite tended to turn from a steady profile to a considerably rapid one with increase in pressure, proving to be highly sensitive to the applied pressure level. Also, different levels of pressure resulted in distinctive combustion behavior not only from the view of thermal characteristics, but also in terms of reaction kinetics.

An investigation into the thermal behavior of coals
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2002-10-01)
The thermal behavior of 4 coal samples was investigated using simultaneous thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA) methods. Upon heating the coals in an inert atmosphere up to 800degreesC, 31.44-43.82% weight loss occurs. The 2 temperature regions of increased chemical reactivity are evident in the coal samples studied Two different models determined kinetic analysis of the samples, and the results are discussed.
A theoretical study on the reaction products of quinoline and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Yildirir, Y (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-14)
In the literature various structures have been proposed for the products of quinoline and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate reaction. In the present study, within the framework of AM1 (RHF) formulism, some light was shed on the mechanism of formation of some of these products.
Theoretical investigation of sulforaphane molecule
Erkoç, Şakir; Erkoc, F (Elsevier BV, 2005-02-14)
The structural and electronic properties of the broccoli sulforaphane molecule have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical molecular orbital (PM3) and density functional theory calculations. The geometry of the molecule has been optimized by PM3 method and the electronic properties and the vibrational spectra of the molecule have been calculated by density functional theory in its ground state.
Thermo-oxidative reactions of crude oils
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-08-01)
In this research, thermo-oxidative reactions of crude oils of different origin are determined in limestone matrix using simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis (TG-DTA) systems. Two different reaction regions were identified known as low temperature (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO). Kinetic parameters of the samples were determined by four different methods and the results are discussed.
Analysis of the Raman Frequency Shifts for the Lattice Modes and Vibrons Related to the Thermodynamic Quantities in the eta Phase of Solid Nitrogen
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2013-08-01)
The thermodynamic quantities of the isothermal compressibility, thermal expansion and the specific heat are calculated here as a function of pressure by using the observed Raman frequencies of the lattice modes and vibrons in the. phase of solid nitrogen. The Pippard relations and their spectroscopic modifications are constructed, and the slope dP/dT is deduced from the Raman frequency shifts in this phase of N-2. It is shown that the thermodynamic quantities can be predicted from the Raman frequency shifts...
