Abstract

Studies of the structure of sooting flames have provided valuable information about chemical and physical processes occurring prior to and during soot formation. These studies have included both laminar and turbulent premixed and diffusion flames, thus permitting sooting behavior to be compared and contrasted for various conditions of practical and theoretical interest. The wide range of available information is covered in recent reviews.1–3
