WATER ADDITION TO PRACTICAL COMBUSTION SYSTEMS-CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS
The use of water as an ancillary combustion control technique has recently received renewed interest. This paper historically reviews the applications of water addition to practical combustion systems and discusses in detail the fundamental aspects of combustion which are affected. Combustion properties of water-in-fuel emulsions are elaborated upon, and several potentially favorable applications which require additional research are identified.
