Mathematical Modeling on Electromagnetic field Control of the Combustion Process


The present paper considers a mathematical model of 2 D compressible, laminar, axial symmetric flame flow taking into account the Lorentz force action on the development of fuel combustion in a cylindrical pipe. The combustion process is modeled with Arrhenius kinetics using a single step exothermic chemical reaction between fuel and oxidant. The analysis of non-stationary PDEs system with 7 unknown functions is carried out.
For the inviscid flow approximation the implicit finite difference scheme in time with upwind differences in space is used. The results of numerical simulation are confirmed by the results of the experimental study of the electromagnetic field effect on the thermo-chemical conversion of biomass mixture (straw+wood).
