Constant volume explosion of organic dust-air mixture at microgravity and normal gravity

Marian Gieras


Comparative studies of the dust explosion process at normal gravity and microgravity conditions for different kinds of dust, different dust concentrations and different levels of dispersion turbulence are presented. The research was carried out in the 13.5 dm3 cylindrical combustion chamber with L/D=1. Microgravity experiments were conducted in the drop tower. Influence of the initial turbulence as well as natural convection on the dust explosion development was determined..
