Modeling of nitrogen oxide formation in a turbulent diffuse flame

  • É. P. Volkov
  • N. Yu. Kudryavtsev


A mathematical model is represented for a turbulent diffuse methane flame in air with nitrogen oxide formation in the combustion products according to the Ya. B. Zel'dovich reaction mechanism taken into account. The model is tested on experimental data for diffusion and premixed flames.
