Abstract

Abstract An inherent part of the dust explosion problem is understanding and dealing with the influence of turbulence on explosion development. This paper reviews effects of turbulence on the following dust explosion parameters: flame propagation rate, maximum explosion pressure, maximum rate of pressure rise, flammability or explosibility limits and minimum ignition energy. The discussion is substantiated with quantitative data and, in the absence of any such data, qualitative observations are presented. Reasons for the discrepancies among test results from large- and small-scale explosion vessels are given.
