In this study, the synergistic effects of ethylene-propane and
ethylene-dimethyl ester (DME) mixtures on soot formation
were investigated experimentally using a co-flow diffusion
flame burner. The soot volume fraction, soot particle diameter,
and number density were measured and compared to the
homogenous mixture. Addition of DME and propane to the
ethylene fuel increased soot volume fraction in the ethylene
flames. The ethylene-propane has more pronounced synergistic
effect in comparison to the ethylene–DME flames. This is due
to the fact that during the decomposition of propane some
methyl radicals are generated. The reactions related to these
methyl radicals promote the formation of propargyl radicals
consequently the formation of benzene through propargyl selfreaction
and finally to the soot formation. Although DME
decomposition produces methyl, C-O bond in the DME
removes some carbon from the reaction path to form soot.
Hence the soot formation in ethylene-DME mixture is much
lower than that of ethylene-propane mixture.
The aim of the project is to investigate whether the material Ethylene Tetraflouroethylene (ETFE), a transparent copolymer, which is a relatively new material on the market, could be used to reduce the overall costs of a ...

To investigate cases of acute oxalate nephrosis without evidence of ethylene glycol exposure, archived data and tissues from cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) from North America (n = 297), southern Africa (n = 257), and France ...
Laminar natural convection in a rectangular cavity with three different heat transfer fluids: water, ethylene
glycol (EG)–water and air were studied experimentally and numerically. The enclosure has a uniform
aspect ratio ...
