Combustion of pulverized coal in CO2 O2 as well as in air atmospheres is studied. Predictions using a one-dimensional computer code were compared with actual experimental data from tests conducted by Battelle Columbus Laboratories. The comparison of predicted and measured data for all test cases show that the observed trends of distributions of temperature and of species concentrations are generally predictable. The study confirms that the combustion of pulverized coal can be completed in a CO2 O2 atmosphere over a range of CO2-to-O2 mole ratios between 2.23 and 3.65.
