DURING an investigation of high temperature flames (at more than 2,500° K), we have developed a burner system capable of burning up to 6 g/sec (50 lb./h) of coal in oxygen to form a stable, continuous flame. An integral part of this development has been a study of the mechanisms which control the rate of combustion.
