3.2 LAMINAR PREMIXED METHANE FLAMES Natural gas is widely used as source of energy for many of our activities and particularly for home appliances, power generation and in transportations. It is, in fact, believed to be a clean fuel which does not produces soot and pollutants. As a consequence it is of great interest to study the combustion of methane, the major component of natural gas, and its by-products in different combustion systems. Therefore, particulate formation by methane combustion has been firstly investigated in laminar premixed conditions. Soot and NOC volume fraction, particles mean diameters have been evaluated for different C/O ratios and for different HAB. 3.2.1 SOOT AND NOC VOLUME FRACTIONS By using the described calibration procedures, LIF and LII signals can be suitable for volume fraction measurements of NOC and soot particles. At this purpose in next two figures the volume fractions of both the particles classes, NOC (Fig. 3.11) and soot (Fig. 3.12), are reported, as function of the equivalent ratio. NOC are detectable just above the stoichiometric value and its concentration increases with the equivalent ratio. Soot particles, instead, are practically absent in flames with equivalence ratios ranging from 1 up to 2, for these flames the incandescence signal of soot particles was not detectable. Thereafter, soot volume fraction quickly increases. In Figs. 3.12 and 3.13 the volume fraction of NOC and soot for two flames, Ф=1.76 and Ф=2, are reported as function of the height above the burner, (HAB). Only in correspondence of Ф=2 soot is detectable, and its concentration increases at higher HAB. Moreover by comparison of the concentrations of gas-phase aromatics as predicted by flame modelling at the beginning of the flame it is reasonable to hypothesize that gas-phase aromatics are the only fluorescing species [76]. The PAHs fluorescence cross section has been evaluated in correspondence of the maximum PAHs concentration and has been considered constant above this point being the oxygen concentration negligible and the flame temperature approximately constant. The signal due to molecular particles can be therefore 67
