Contents Notes
This volume (Volume I) is an overview of the entire contract and the summary of the technical effort in gas-phase chemistry. EPA's first fundamental combustion research (FCR) applied to pollution control program was a subcontract oriented program focused on the simultaneous control of nitrogen oxides (NO[subscript x]) and particulate from large, confined, 1-atmosphere, turbulent diffusion flames burning heavy residual oil and pulverized coal. The program had three major objectives: * To generate the understanding of combustor behavior necessary to aid EPA/AEERL's Combustion Research Branch (CRB) in developing control strategies to minimize NO[subscript x] emissions from stationary sources. * To develop engineering models which would allow effective utilization of a large body of fundamental information in the development of new NO[subscript x] control techniques. * To identify critical information necessary for low NO[subscript x] combustor development and to generate it in a time frame which was consistent with the needs of the CRB technology development programs. The FCR program was divided into three program areas and two support areas. The major program areas were concerned with (1) gas-phase chemistry, (2) the physics and chemistry of two-phase systems, and (3) transport processes in reacting systems. This organization was designed to address the critical phenomena that occurred to solid or liquid fuels in turbulent diffusion flames in order to describe fuel NO formation from stationary sources. The two support areas were for the development of measurement techniques and the development of analytical tools required during the program and for future investigations.
