A novel combustion manner, which is called porous media combustion with a reciprocating flow system, has been presented with its predominant advantages of high thermal efficiency, stable combustion, broad combustion limits and low pollutant emissions.
Two important concepts: superadiabatic combustion and porous media combustion was introduced. Then, the detailed introductions on both mechanical and application research on porous media combustion with a reciprocating flow system are presented.
In recent years, porous media combustion, as a new kind of combustion technology, characterized by super-adiabatic combustion temperature, low pollutants emission, strong thermal radiation and steady combustion, has been developing very fast.
The main contents are as follows:Firstly, the research on porous media combustion technology was analyzed. The mention, principle, classification and application of this combustion technology were all introduced in detail.
