  • Numerical study on propagation and NO reduction behavior of laminar stratified ammonia/air flames

    Tomidokoro T., Yokomori T., Im H.G.

    Combustion and Flame (Combustion and Flame)  241 2022.07

    ISSN  00102180

     View Summary

    In recently developed ammonia combustion technologies such as swirl flow and staged combustion, locally rich or lean pockets of unburned mixtures may occur due to insufficient mixing. This results in a premixed flamelet propagating into a gradually leaner or richer mixture. The present study aims to numerically investigate the propagation of laminar ammonia/air premixed flames in compositionally stratified mixtures. Results indicate that the flame speed in a rich-to-lean stratified mixture is increased from that in corresponding homogeneous mixtures at each local equivalence ratio. In contrast, the stratified flame speed is decreased in a lean-to-rich stratified mixture. The response of the stratified flame speed is attributed to variation in the amount of H2 in the burned gas. In the rich-to-lean stratified flame, an extra amount of H2 diffuses into the reaction zone to enhance chain-branching reactions which produce H radicals. The increased H radicals then promote dehydration reactions, resulting in an increased fuel consumption rate. In the lean-to-rich stratified flame, the opposite process takes place. The above mechanism is similar to the so-called back-support effect observed in methane/air stratified flames. Meanwhile, in both rich-to-lean and lean-to-rich stratified flames, additional NO reduction occurs in the stoichiometric region of the burned gas. This is facilitated by unburned ammonia diffusing from the neighboring rich burned gas mixing with O/H radicals diffusing from the neighboring lean burned gas, resulting in a production of extra NHi radicals which readily reduce NO. Therefore, NO emission in stratified flames is expected to be lower than that estimated from the emission characteristics in homogeneous mixtures. Although similar to the well-known thermal DeNOx mechanism, the current NO reduction process occurs under a much higher temperature due to the abundance of radical species. A similar phenomenon is expected to be observed in a triple flame configuration, which requires future investigations.

  • Experimental Investigation of the Effects of Fuel Injection on the Cycle-to-Cycle Variation of the In-Cylinder Flow in a Direct-Injection Engine Using High-Speed Particle Image Velocimetry Measurement

    Kaneko Y., Nagashima T., Tomidokoro T., Matsuda M., Yokomori T.

    SAE International Journal of Engines (SAE International Journal of Engines)  15 ( 6 )  2022.02

    ISSN  19463936

     View Summary

    In a direct-injection (DI) engine, the in-cylinder flow is complex. Fluctuations of DI and in-cylinder flow, and the relationships between those fluctuations, are considered to affect the cycle-to-cycle variation (CCV) of combustion. However, neither the relationship between the injection conditions and the CCV of the in-cylinder flow nor the effect of the in-cylinder tumble flow on the spray has been clarified in detail. In this study, a single-cylinder optical engine was used to perform high spatial resolution particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements and to photograph spray behavior throughout the cylinder. The spray timing was changed to investigate the timing's effects on the in-cylinder flow, the CCV, and tumble vortex center behavior. The penetration length was calculated from the spray images and compared with the PIV measurement results. The PIV results showed that the behavior of the bulk flow in the cylinder, the position of the center of the tumble vortex, and the CCV of the velocity changed depending on the presence or absence of DI and the injection timing. The overall trend was that the shorter the time elapsed after injection, the stronger the effect on the in-cylinder flow remained. The results of spray imaging revealed that the ambient flow velocity affected the direct spray at the time of injection when the flow velocity was high in the spray direction and that the spray extended faster. In addition to the advantage of the longer diffusion time, the fast in-cylinder flow in the same direction as the direct jet did not cause much momentum exchange with the spray, while making it easier for the spray to diffuse throughout.

  • Flame Aerosol Synthesis of Core-Shell Particles

    YOKOMORI Takeshi, TOMIDOKORO Takuya

    Journal of the Combustion Society of Japan (Combustion Society of Japan)  63 ( 205 ) 201 - 209 2021

    ISSN  1347-1864

     View Summary

    <p>Core shell particles comprise a core content and a coating shell of another material. The core shell structure can realize a new functional material that cannot be realized by a particle which has only a single composition. Wet chemical synthesis is commonly used in the fabrication of core–shell particles, but recently, some reports on flame aerosol synthesis of core-shell particles have been published. Flame aerosol synthesis can offer continuous one-step production process including high-temperature treatment, and results in high-purity fine crystalline particles. Therefore, it is expected that flame aerosol synthesis method for core-shell particles will be further developed in the future. In this paper, we explain the details of flame aerosol synthesis method for core-shell particles and give an interpretation of the physical processes.</p>

  • Lifetime characteristics of co-doped phosphor and performance improvement of thermometry by simultaneous measurement on two wavelengths

    MATSUSHITA Yuki, YOKOMORI Takeshi

    The Proceedings of Conference of Kanto Branch (The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers)  2021 ( 0 ) 10A15 2021

     View Summary

    <p>The effects of co-doping in phosphors and the use of co-doped phosphors to extend the temperature measurement range were experimentally investigated in terms of the lifetime method. Such effects can be evaluated by comparing the single and double luminescent centers. In this study, YAG:Tb, YAG:Cr and YAG:Cr,Tb were prepared by sol-gel method and the luminescence intensity was measured under excitation by the 4<sup>th</sup> harmonic of Nd:YAG laser. In order to improve the temperature measurement performance of YAG:Cr,Tb, it is desirable to divide it into two wavelength regions with a threshold around 600 nm, and to switch between the two regions depending on the temperature range when performing temperature measurement by the lifetime method. The absolute lifetime sensitivity <i>S<sub>A</sub></i> is a suitable index to use when dividing the temperature region into two regions, resulting in switching at around 800 K. The lifetime of the Cr-derived luminescence is slightly longer, while that of the Tb-derived luminescence is about 10 times shorter.</p>

  • Improved knock detection method for lean burn SI engines

    The Proceedings of Conference of Kanto Branch (The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers)  2021 ( 0 ) 10A16 2021

     View Summary

    <p>The purpose of this study was to improve the accuracy of knock detection for lean burn SI engines. In this study, we conducted an experiment to observe autoignition in an engine cylinder using a borescope and a high-speed camera under an air excess ratio of 2.1. In addition, the resonance frequency of each vibration mode by knocking and the knock intensity were also calculated from the in-cylinder pressure history. Autoignition was optically observed in all cycles with a knock intensity of more than 20 kPa or more, and in some cycles with that of less than 20 kPa. We compared the vibration caused by combustion and it caused by autoignition. As a result, by distinguishing between the vibration caused by combustion and it caused by autoignition using window functions, a knocking cycle that could not be detected by the conventional index was detected.</p>

  • Fundamentals and Principles of Phosphor Thermometry

    YOKOMORI Takeshi, ISHIWADA Naohiro

    Journal of the Combustion Society of Japan (Combustion Society of Japan)  62 ( 201 ) 234 - 241 2020.08

    Article, review, commentary, editorial, etc. (scientific journal), Joint Work,  ISSN  1347-1864

     View Summary

    Accurate and reliable temperature measurements are crucial to improve the thermal efficiency and optimize the design of products because temperature is an important parameter to understand heat conduction, convention, radiation, and chemical reactions. The emission properties of phosphors are sensitive to temperature, hence, phosphor thermometry can make remote temperature sensing. Accordingly, phosphor thermometry has received considerable attention as a versatile alternative to conventional temperature measurement techniques. This article describes the principles and fundamental aspects of phosphor thermometry, that is, principles of luminescence, temperature dependences of luminescence characteristics and how to use those dependence characteristics such as life time method and spectral intensity ratio method.

    航空機用や産業用に用いられるガスタービンエンジンから発生する騒音は,ファンや排気ジェットを音源とする流体騒音と燃料/酸化剤の発熱反応を音源とする燃焼騒音とに大別される.近年,流体騒音の低減が着実に進んでいる一方で,燃焼騒音の寄与率が急激に上昇し,その低減が喫緊の課題とされている.しかし,燃焼騒音については,その発生メカニズムすら十分に理解されていない.また,燃焼騒音は壁反射や乱流渦等の外的因子により変調するが,その影響についてはこれまで議論されていない.本研究では,水素の乱流希薄予混合旋回火炎を対象に実験と数値解析を併用することより,燃焼騒音の発生・変調メカニズムを明らかにすることを目指す.
