Abstract

The burning characteristics of pure n-alkanes (n-octadecane and n-docosane) are investigated. Combustion of single and double droplets is studied experimentally, the histories of burning droplets are obtained, and the burning rate constants are determined. Flame transfer is studied in a two- droplet system.
