Abstract : As a part of the program of comprehensive studies of combustion and heat transfer at high pressures, an experimental investigation was made of diesel fuel combustion under 8 atm of air and up to 50 atm of oxygen-steam. The experiments were conducted in two combustion chambers with diameters of 0.22 and 0.32 and lengths of 1.65 and 2 m. The length of the combustion zone was determined as a function of the air excess factor and pressure. A previously derived formula for calculating the length of the combustion zone as a function of the air excess factor, flow velocity, and fuel density was found to give results in good agreement with the experiments. Temperature, velocity, and concentration profiles and heat transfer coefficients were also obtained. (Author)
