Research Topic: Effect of NaCl on evolution of soot particles on a laminar methane diffusion flame
Alireza Moallemi is a M.Sc. student in mechanical engineering at University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta. He is currently working on Theme 1 of the FlareNet Strategic Network investigating the effect of NaCl on formation of soot particles from early stages of soot inception to soot growth and oxidation. In his project, NaCl crystals are injected into a laminar methane diffusion flame and probe sampling technique is used to extract soot samples from different regions of the flame to make inquiries on size distribution and morphology of soot particles.
