This research program was a theoretical and experimental study of laminar flame propagation in pure methane air and coal dust air mixtures, and in such mixtures containing suppressant additives. The flames studied included methane air, coal dust air, coal dust air with size, volatiles content and concentration as variables, and coal dust air plus khco3, kno3, kbr, nacl, or caco3. A variety of measurements were made of burning velocities, flammability limits, and flame structure. In support of the experimental work, a generalized flame propagation model was developed to describe the propagation in premixed, laminar gaseous, and particle-laden flames.
