Paper Abstract

Combustion involves the burning or oxidation of a fuel which liberates heat. A fuel requires oxygen, an initial excitation in the form of heat, and a finite time and mixing to drive the combustion reaction to completion. An example of methane combustion can be symbolized as follows: CH4 + 202 + 7.52N2 → CO2 + 2H2O + 7.52N2 + Heat
