A mathematical model of soot formation in natural gas combustion. 1. Kinetic equation and critical temperature of the dehydrogenization process

  • A. G. Blokh
  • A. I. Shchelokov


Elements of a mathematical model are presented for the process of soot formation in natural gas combustion, based on thermal decomposition of the CH4 methane molecule. The expressions obtained can be used for calculation of the size and concentration of soot particles and their thermal radiation in a natural gas flame.
