Numerical Assessment on Rotation Effect of the Stagnation Surface on Nanoparticle Deposition in Flame Synthesis
AbstractThe effect of rotation of the stagnation surface on the nanoparticle deposition in the flame stabilizing on a rotating surface (FSRS) configuration was numerically assessed using CFD method. The deposition properties including particle trajectories, deposition time, temperature and surrounding O2 concentration between the flame and stagnation surface were examined. The results revealed that although flame position is insensitive to the surface rotation, the temperature and velocity fields are remarkably affected, and the deposition properties become asymmetric along the burner centerline when the surface rotates at a fast speed (rotational speed ω ≥ 300 rpm). Particles moving on the windward side have similar deposition properties when the surface rotates slowly, but the off-center particles on the leeward side have remarkable longer deposition time, lower deposition temperature, and lower surrounding O2 concentration, and they even never deposit on the surface when the surface rotates at a high speed. The rotation effect of the stagnation surface can be quantitatively described by an analogous Karlovitz number (Ka’), which is defined as the ratio of characteristic residence time of moving surface to the aerodynamics time induced by flame stretch. For high quality semiconducting metal oxide (SMO) films, it is suggested that Ka’ ≥ 1 should be kept. View Full-Text
