Interaction of burning metal burning particles

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Metal particles which are large enough to observe, but would rapidly settle down at normal gravity, were aerosolized and ignited under microgravity environments to study the effects of the interaction of burning metal particles on ignition and combustion of metal aerosols. The use of large particles made it possible to observe development and merging of individual particle flames during aerosol combustion. Normal gravity ignition experiments using 150-200 μm diameter magnesium particles were performed using a specially designed experimental apparatus.
