Using chemiluminecence images, it is shown that Nitro-ignited spray flame shows greater intensity than fuel without MAZ.
The presence of MAZ has contributed to the acceleration of predisposition activity, thus releasing abundant radicals enhancing the flame speed and improve combustion.
Adding MAZ also reduces the autoignition temperature of the fuel resisting the fluctuating change in ambient temperature.
The incandescence images further shows fuel is prone to yield soot formation wherever it is in flames. The images shows that the abundant soot is produced inside the flame. However, in the case of MAZ dosed fuel the soot concentrate in higher temperature reaction zone is decreasing. It assumes that MAZ prohibits the onset of soot production in the high temperature reaction zone.
