    Abstract

    Wobbe Index meter is widely used to reflect the energy content and gas quality of a fuel gas mixture. It is highly in demand to downscale from the conventionally large Wobbe Index facility to a miniaturized Wobbe Index meter. Therefore spontaneously combustion of the fuel gas/air mixtures on a MEMS-based combustor can provide in-line temperature monitoring of the combustion produced heat. However, flame can be quenched by the channel walls when the walls are closely spaced. Therefore, it is crucial to design a micro-combustor with good thermal management and strong mechanical stability. MEMS-based Trench-Assisted Surface Channel Technology is designed and developed to realize these large-volume suspended combustor structures.
