Abstract : This final technical report summarizes Yale High Temperature Chemical Reaction Engineering Laboratory research activities (under Grant AFOSR 91-0170) for the three-year period ending 14 February 1994. Among our research results described in detail in the cited references (Section 5), perhaps the most noteworthy are the development/reporting of: R1 rational methods to predict the accessible surface area and translational Brownian diffusivity of aggregated 'soot' particles in high pressure combustion gases; R2 experimental inference of particle thermophoretic diffusivities for titanin aggregates in laminar counterflow laminar diffusion flames; consequences of particle thermophoresis for flame radiation, flame synthesis, and 'non-biased' thermophoretic sampling; and R3 qualitative methods for predicting/correlating the effects vapor phase chemical reactions on the rate and quality of vapor-deposited ceramic thin films. Thirty verbal presentations, ten archival publications, and three PhDs have resulted from this research program. Additionally, nine papers are submitted or in press. Copies of the principal reprints appearing during the final year of this program are included in the Appendices (Section 6) of this report.
