Latest Combustion Stories
As demand climbs for more fuel-efficient vehicles, knowledge compiled over several years about diesel engines and a new strategy known as "low-temperature combustion" (LTC) might soon lead auto manufacturers and consumers to broader use of cleaner diesel engines in the United States.
The v4.20 es-ice release gives users extensive new physics capabilities and pre-processing developments to deliver rapid and more accurate in-cylinder simulation. New
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) analyzed the behavior of flames in space, including how and why they form little "spheres."
Flash fires can spring up unexpectedly and cause damage and injury.
A new mechanism to convert natural gas to energy up to 70 times faster than current methods has been identified by chemical engineering researchers. This new mechanism also effectively captures the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2).
A Bunsen burner produces a single open gas flame; it is commonly found in labs - used for heating, sterilization, and combustion. Robert Bunsen, in 1852, was hired at the University of Heidelberg and promised a new laboratory building. Heidelberg had just started installing coal-gas street lighting which provided light but not necessarily heat. Laboratory lamps, at the time, left much to be desired regarding economy and simplicity. The desire was to maximize the temperature and minimize...
