A comprehensive analytical and experimental study of thermal reactors has been made. The research focused on the Chevrolet 350 cu in engine -- duPont Model V reactor combination. An experimental technique was developed which permits an assessment of the completeness of mixing between exhaust and injected air within a thermal reactor and is expected to be useful as a design aid. In addition to oxidation results for CO, H2 and hydrocarbons as a whole, measurements were made to determine any changes in nitric oxide, aldehydes and olefin, paraffin, and aromatic class proportion affected by the thermal reactor at selected operating conditions. Finally separate studies were conducted in a stirred tank reactor to determine global oxidation kinetics for exhaust CO, HC and H2 to be used in the computer simulation.
