- This year the main thrust of the work was towards examining specific aspects of the production, storage, and use of coal-oil mixtures (COMs) and establishing some areas in which more research is needed. The areas of stability (including the role of additives), atomization and combustion as they relate to coal-oil mixtures (COMs) were considered. The major conclusions are summarized below. Stability for pipeline transport may be attainable with proper design and coal particle size distribution (PSD) and storage stability could probably be accomplished with agitation, the agglomerating properties of the particles being important. The use of additives to promote stability involves considerations of supply and economics as well as of the chemical nature of the coal-oil interface which can depend on the type and history (oxidation, etc.) of the coal and oil. COM sprays may contain significant inhomogeneities and recent work on liquid spray combustion indicates that the atomization characteristics could strongly influence their combustion properties. Little is known of details of COM flames such as heat flux profiles and the measurement of these as functions of fuel and atomizer properties should aid in the design of COM combustors.
