Influence of temperature on the production and size distribution of fine particles released from beech wood samples
MetadataShow full item record
This study deals with laboratory investigation of fine particulate matter production over controlled heating of beech wood samples in the atmosphere with 21% of oxygen. From carried out measurements follow that majority of emitted fine particles is in the range 40 nm to 500 nm. The peak number of particles is between 100 nm an 300 nm. The mass concentration of produced particulate matter increases proportionally with increasing size of the sample. The number of particles is increasing too, but not proportionally. In the second step, the samples in form of sawdust, bark and heartwood were analyzed from the view of particulate matter production. Obtained results are strongly influenced by actual combustion conditions that significantly differ between wood samples forms. It is not easy to find any clear trend between temperature and size distribution of produced particles. From the general view, the bark produces higher number concentration of ultrafine particles in comparison with heartwood and sawdust samp
