    Combustion dynamics are investigated for plasma-enhanced methane-air flames in premixed and nonpremixed configurations using a transient arc dc plasmatron. Planar laser-induced fluorescence images of hydroxyl (OH) and carbon monoxide (CO) radicals are obtained over a range of equivalence ratios (φ = 0.7 - 1.3), flow rates (6-18 LPM), and plasma powers (100-900 mA) to monitor radical propaga...

    Low-temperature plasmas generated from dielectric barrier discharges (DBDs) play an important role in hydrocarbon combustion reactions. In this paper, two different arrangements of coaxial cylindrical DBD reactors are designed to investigate the enhancement processes of plasma-assisted propane combustion through activating propane and air, respectively. Each reactor corresponds to one kind of acti... View full abstract»

    Three kinds of water mist with different droplet sizes are applied to understand the effect of droplet sizes on the initiation and propagation of discharges in a nonuniform field at atmospheric pressure. Based on the measurement of droplet sizes in three mists and the volume fraction of water droplets, effect of droplet sizes is demonstrated by directly comparing the percentages of the discharge p...

    The creation of artificial and natural fireballs has been considered. Basing on successful experiments in discharges and plasma combustion influence on different materials, a theoretical model of ball lightning creation as a result of linear lightning impact on Earth components with creation of a reservoir-strong oxide cover filled with metal powder-has been proposed. This object is electrically c... View full abstract»

    Carbon dioxide reforming of methane has drawn the attention of many researchers for years, because of both its theoretical yield of hydrogen to carbon monoxide, i.e., H2/CO = 1, and the use of greenhouse gas CO2 . Although catalytic processes have been widely investigated, plasma-based techniques were recently considered, because catalytic processes have problems, such as cok... View full abstract»

    Theoretical and experimental investigations of the working processes in a plasma-assisted combustion and reformation system have been conducted. The selected concept can provide higher performance, wider turndown ratios, more efficient propellant utilization, demonstration of potential fuel flexibility, and satisfaction of major gravimetric and volumetric density requirements. Obtained results and... View full abstract»

    In the frame of studies devoted to hazardous waste destruction, a specially designed plasma torch with a doubleanode configuration has been developed and tested. It produces an elongated, weak-fluctuation, and reproducible plasma jet at atmospheric pressure. A calcium-rich air pollution control residue from a mechanical-grate municipal solid-waste incinerator is vitrified by this plasma arc techno... View full abstract»
