|Abstract:||This paper reports an investigation on the influences of air−fuel injection momentum rate and the air−fuel premixing on the moderate or intense low oxygen dilution (MILD) combustion in a 20-kW recuperative furnace. Various patterns of partially and fully premixed reactants have proven experimentally to work extremely well in the present furnace. H2 recorded for a variety of equivalence ratios at a firing rate of 10 kW. The present numerical study suggests that there is a critical momentum rate of the inlet fuel−air mixture below which the MILD combustion cannot occur. Also, it is revealed, both experimentally and numerically, that, above the critical rate, both the inlet fuel−air mixedness and momentum rate impose insignificant influence on the stability of and emissions from the MILD combustion.|
