Title of the thesis:Smouldering and flaming combustion of wood pellets
Summary:The work deals with smouldering a flaming combustion of wood pellets. Smouldering and flaming combustion were examined in a sample of pellets made from spruce sawdust, while the minimum ignition temperature was observed for this sample, however modified by grinding and sieving. The theoretical part includes the basic characteristics of wood pellets, physical - mechanical, chemical - thermal and fire-fighting properties of wood pellets. Experimental part is mainly devoted to examining nonflaming its transition to a flame combustion. The measurement was performed using a cone calorimeter, where was observed formation of burning. Another part is the determination of the minimum ignition temperatures established and dust clouds.
Key words:solid fuels, wood pellets, smouldering and flaming combustion of wood pellets, ignition
