Approximations to the distributed activation energy model for the pyrolysis of coal

Abstract:

The Distributed Activation Energy Model (DAEM), used for the pyrolysis of a range of materials (including coal, biomass, residual oils and kerogen), assumes that the thermal decomposition of numerous components is described by a distribution of activation energies. Existing theories are reviewed with particular focus on methods used to evaluate solutions quickly and efficiently. This paper demonstrates that previous approaches taken to simplify the methods of solution can usually be identifie...
