NTIS: PB/286-124 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :117 pages
A stirred reactor combustion system was developed to gather information on the mechanisms of ignition and flame propagation of coal dust under conditions similar to those found in coal dust explosion flames. Experiments have been carried out using pulverized bituminous coal. These experiments have provided information on the mode of ignition of the coal as well as yielding information on the kinetics of coal pyrolysis through use of the stirred reactor theory.
