Amyotte, P and Khan, F and Boilard, S and Iarossi, I and Cloney, C and Dastidar, A and Eckhoff, R and Marmo, L and Ripley, R, Explosibility of nontraditional dusts: Experimental and modeling challenges, 23rd Institution of Chemical Engineers Symposium on Hazards 2012, HAZARDS 2012, (158) pp. 83-90. ISSN 0307-0492 (2012) [Refereed Article]


The current paper describes experimental and modeling research for a series of nontraditional particulate fuel/air systems: nanomaterials, fiocculent materials and hybrid mixtures. At the time of writing, experimentation is at the following stages: (i) nanomaterials - completed with data analysis performed, (ii) fiocculent materials - completed with data analysis performed, and (iii) hybrid mixtures - underway (about 70 % completed) with data analysis in the early stages. Modeling work is also underway and includes phenomenological, thermokinetic and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) considerations. © 2012 IChemE.
