This week, the IFRF Handbook publishes a further Combustion File relating to ignition.

This combustion file has been authored by Sylvain Salvador of the Ecole des Mines at Albi, France. This is the first output from a concerted initiative by the French Flame Research Committee to contribute new material to the Handbook.

We are currently developing two more further Combustion Files  with Sylvain Salvador that will support CF257 by providing options for calculating the heat release and heat loss from burning carbonaceous particles.

Our thanks to Brian Stanmore, of the University of Queensland, Australia, for refereeing these Combustion Files

IFRF Members may read or download this new Combustion File at www.handbook.ifrf.net, by selecting ‘New Combustion Files’ after accepting the disclaimer screen. Other Combustion Files on related themes, many of which are also open to non-IFRF members,  may be found by using the links built into the CF, or by searching the Handbook with the  keywords like ‘ignition’  or ‘start’ or ‘stability’.
