A thin wire served in our experiments both as a hot surface to ignite Hot wire ignition of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures book hydrogen-oxygen mixtures and as a resistance temperature sensor. Nichrome wires, which are non-catalytic [13], were used, since a catalytic ma- terial such as platinum can greatly reduce the ignition temperature of hydrogen [5].Cited by: The risk of accidental ignition of flammable mixtures by a hot surface is of particular importance for industry.

In the present work, two-dimensional simulations with detailed chemistry, and study of the reaction pathways of the buoyancy-driven flow and ignition of a stoichiometric hydrogen-air mixture by a rapidly heated surface (glowplug) are by: The ability of a resonance tube to produce ignition of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures was first demonstrated at room temperature by E.

Conrad and A. Pavli of Lewis, thereby confirming its potential as a passive igniter for hydrogen-oxygen rocket engines. The work reported herein was intended to lay the groundwork for the design and demon­. For hydrogen, the minimum ignition energy is low at mJ for mixtures with air (ISO, ), and even lower at mJ for mixtures with oxygen (Kuchta, ).

Hydrogen has a such a low minimum ignition energy that it is often difficult to determine the exact mechanism and cause of an ignition when it occurs.

The existence of three limits of ignition typical of the ignition of hydrogen–oxygen mixtures in a spherical vessel is noted. [4] N.M. Laurendau, Thermal ignition of methane-air mixtures by hot surfaces:a critical examination, Combustion and Flame 46 () [5] R.K.

Weak ignition is a combustion phenomenon that is observed for certain operating conditions, and is associated with the non-uniform and distributed ignition of the mixture. This is in contrast to strong ignition. the ignition time delay of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures under detonation or near detonation conditions was effected.

The problem to be considered is that. The detonation characteristics of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures were com- puted for the experimental range of conditions by the use of the elementary theory of detonation.

The Autoignition Temperature for a monopropellant is the temperature at which it will self-heat to ignition in the absence of an oxidizer.

Background Occasionally it is necessary to make measurements in hydrogen/oxygen mixtures. The increased use of fuel cells and the use of hydrogen as a vehicle fuel have increased the frequency with which this requirement occurs.

The requirement occurs usually within process vessels since when the mixture is released the problem becomes a mixture of hydrogen/oxygen.

This paper addresses homogeneous ignition of hydrogen-oxygen mixtures when the initial conditions of temperature and pressure place the system below the crossover temperature associated with the second explosion limit.

A three-step reduced mechanism involving H 2, O 2, H 2O, H 2O 2 and HO 2. In the framework of research motivated by the Challenger disaster a team of researchers have pursued all possible mechanisms of igniting explosions of.

The ignition of a gas mixture containing 8 mole %H2 and 2 mole %O2 in argon was studied in a shock tube at °—°K. The observed ignition delays were longer than would be expected by extrapolation of data obtained by other workers at higher temperatures. The rapid increase in induction time with decreasing temperature can be accounted for quantitatively by an ignition mechanism.

it is the theory chapter, which explains some of the properties of ignition and the most important chain reactions in a hydrogen-oxygen system.

Further-more, it states reasons for why there exist explosion and flammability limits. Chapter 3 will deal with the simulation methods of the Pencil Code. Here a.

If oxygen. the ignition temperature for hydrogen-oxygen mixtures at atmospheric pressure, Anzilotti felt the knock must have originated from an auto-ignition of the end gas.

The effect of tetraethyllead on flame speed was not investigated. King did a long-term study on hydrogen fueled engines at the University of Toronto in the s [6,8,9]. Hydrogen safety covers the safe production, handling and use of hydrogen - particularly hydrogen gas fuel and liquid main concern in working with hydrogen is flammability.

Hydrogen possesses the NFPA 's highest rating of 4 on the flammability scale because it is flammable when mixed even in small amounts with ordinary air; ignition can occur at a volumetric ratio of hydrogen.

Write a balanced chemical equation for the combustion reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to give water. The minimum excess energy that must be supplied in the form of a flame or other source of ignition is called the activation energy for the reaction.

Write the balanced chemical equation for the single-replacement reaction of zinc and hydrochloric acid to generate hydrogen gas. Methods of ignition include pyrotechnic, electrical (spark or hot wire), and chemical. Hypergolic propellants have the advantage of self igniting, reliably and with less chance of hard starts.

In the s, the Russians began to start engines with hypergolic fuel, then switch over to .This turned out to be rather easy to do —lots of things are soluble in N 2 O 4 — but at an unacceptable price. L. G. Cole, at JPL, intried such tilings as mono and di nitrobenzene, picric acid, and methyl nitrate, and discovered, upon examining his mixtures, that he had some 56 Ignition.An igniter.
