CHARACTERIZATION OF EMISSIONS AND NON-HOMOGENEOUS FUEL DECOMPOSITION IN A BATCH RUN TWO-STAGE WOOD-FIRED HYDRONIC HEATER
MetadataShow full item record
A major challenge often encountered in the domestic wood burning community is the inability to accurately determine real-time/instantaneous emissions and performance characteristics on unsteady batch run systems. These limitations are centered on a simplifying assumption; that the atomic ratios of the biomass fuel remains constant throughout the entirety of a burn. This simplification is widely realized to be inaccurate, yet for lack of a better approach it is perpetuated, accepted and more or less forgotten.
