Investigation on the characteristics of single-phase gas explosion and gas-coal dust coupling explosion in bifurcated tubes

ABSTRACT
In order to deeply understand the overpressure propagation characteristics of explosion shock wave of single-phase gas explosion and gas-coal dust coupling explosion in bifurcated tube, this paper makes a comprehensive and in-depth study on the change and distribution law of explosion shock wave overpressure of single-phase gas explosion and gas-coal dust coupling explosion in bifurcated tube by means of experimental research, the results show that: The explosion shock wave overpressure of single-phase gas explosion and gas-coal dust coupling explosion is all affected by the bifurcation angle of the tube, the larger the bifurcation angle of the tube is, the greater the explosion shock wave overpressure is. In terms of explosion shock wave overpressure distribution, single-phase gas explosion and gas-coal dust coupling explosion show a similar overall development trend, and the maximum explosion shock wave overpressure is obtained in front of the bifurcation point. The mutation coefficients of explosion shock wave overpressure of single-phase gas explosion and gas-coal dust coupling explosion before and after the bifurcation point of the tube are all affected by the bifurcation angle of the tube. In the straight tube section, the mutation coefficient of explosion shock wave overpressure increases gradually with the increase of the bifurcation angle of the tube, while the situation in the inclined tube section is just the opposite. Under the condition of the same bifurcation angle, the shock wave overpressure mutation coefficient of gas-coal dust coupling explosion is smaller than that of single-phase gas explosion.
