Flameout Book Description:

New York Times bestselling author of Wicked Embers cranks up the tension in the next Souls of Fire novel, featuring Emberly Pearson, a phoenix who assumes human form to fight death at every turn.... Emberly and her red hot partner, Jackson, have hit an impasse in their battle against the crazed humans infected by a plague-like virus derived from vampire blood. Their quest to unearth the leader of the group leads them into an ambush - and leaves Emberly at odds with her former lover, Sam, who's pressuring her to join his Paranormal Investigations Team. To make matters worse, three local witches have been kidnapped - and if their spells fall into the wrong hands, Emberly's powers could end up smothered. With time ticking until the virus consumes the world, Emberly and Jackson must race to save the witches, find a cure, and smoke out their nemesis - or go down in a blaze of glory...

Turnpike Flameout Book Description:

When a private jet crashes in the New Jersey Pine Barrens on the Fourth of July, the search begins for faded rock and roller, Turnpike Bobby Chin. The singer suspiciously survives and turns up wandering in the haunted woods. Soon after, a celebrity sculptor vanishes after unveiling his unflattering statue of the star. The cops say it's homicide, and make plans to bust Turnpike Bobby. When the media circus begins, gangland-bred pollster Jonah Eastman is hired to devise a "P.A.S." (Plausible Alternative Scenario) for the sculptor's death. A beautiful au pair vanishes from Atlantic City, and it's all the media want to talk about – not Bobby. Which angers Bobby because he hasn't gotten this much attention since the Reagan Administration. As he works to vindicate the rocker, Jonah enters the inner-sanctum of the celebrity icon, a world so seductive and lethal that Jonah waxes nostalgic for his days working for the Mafia. TURNPIKE FLAMEOUT is a black comic ride through the underbelly of mega-stardom and the spins employed by handlers to ensure that crime pays. Quite well, actually.

Continuous Spark Ignition for Rapid Relight After Flameout of Gas Turbine Engines Book Description:

The in-flight flameout of gas turbine engines, in many instances, is the result of transient reductions in engine air flow caused by many possible conditions such as particular aircraft maneuvers, contamination of intake airflow by exhaust products of self-propelled ordnance launched from aircraft, and severe ice ingestion by the engine. If the aircraft loses altitude or flight speed due to the engine flameout, or must be piloted to lower altitude in order to relight the engine, the mission of that particular aircraft is either compromised or completely aborted. The first major effort on rapid relight of gas turbine engines appears to have been accomplished by the British. In early 1956, Proteous Engines of the Bristol Britannia Commercial Aircraft experienced flameout while flying through heavy precipitation of small ice crystals at very low air temperature. The British were successful in obtaining rapid relights under these icing conditions by inserting into the combustion chamber of the Proteous engine, a platinum glow plug. Apparently the platinum rod is heated to incandescence during normal engine operation, and this heat is retained sufficiently after flameout to relight the engine. The catalytic effects of platinum upon mixtures of hydrocarbon fuels and air probably aid the relight process also.

Flameout Book Description:

This is the story of the greatest might-have-been in the history of the fast food business. How did a company that began almost by accident become the innovation leader by 1960? What caused a decade-long slide that began right at the moment of their greatest success? Understanding begins with studying the experiences that forged Burger Chef and its leaders, and then learning from the mistakes corporations can make when they replace innovation and entrepreneurship with process and control-a lesson as important today as it was a half-century ago.

Optical Flameout Detector Book Description:

"It is necessary to detect a flameout to guard against an unplanned combustor flameout and reignition during operation. By detecting the flameout quickly and limiting the quantity of fuel allowed to enter the combustion chamber after a flameout is detected, the magnitude of a detonation is limited to acceptable levels if a reignition of the unburned fuel occurs. Present flameout detectors include optical systems and temperature sensing devices. The optical devices are ultraviolet detectors which sense UV radiation generated by combustion in the 200 -300 nm range such as Geiger-Mueller or Edison tubes which provide response times of 150 milliseconds to 30 seconds. The temperature sensing devices include thermocouples which are immersed in the flame to sense the flame temperature. These devices provide response times of 200 - 300 milliseconds. In addition to having slow response times, these systems are unable to survive the high pressures and widely varying temperatures within some combustor environments. The present invention is a device for detecting a flameout in a fuel-supplied combustion chamber is provided which includes a pair of optical detectors optically coupled to a pair of fiber optic probes. The ultraviolet optical detector, preferably a photomultiplier tube, provides a measurement of the change in intensity of a flame within the ultraviolet region of the light spectrum. The visible light optical detector, preferably a silicon photodiode, provides a measurement of the change in intensity of a flame within the visible region of the light spectrum. The fiber optic probes have a field of view between 0° and 16° and are located within the combustion chamber to couple each optical detector to the light source. In the preferred embodiment, the fiber optic probes are fused silica optical fibers encased in a stainless steel sheath and an epoxy resin is inserted in between the optical fiber and the steel sheath at one end and a silicon RTV is inserted in between the optical fiber and the steel sheath at the other end. The measurements taken by the optical detectors are evaluated to determine if a change in intensity has occurred within the flame and, if a change has occurred, a signal is provided indicating a flameout."--Page i.

Evaluation of the Conductron Flameout Sensor for Gas Turbine Automatic Restart System Book Description:

The Conductron Model 66A001 Flameout Sensor was evaluated under flameout conditions induced by fuel derichment and simulated missile exhaust gas ingestion at sea level, Mach 0.0, 0.5 and 0.8. The Conductron Flameout Sensor satisfactorily observed the presence and absence of flame when the sensor was mounted in the engine spark ignitor opening. The sensor responded rapidly (0.05 seconds) to observed loss of flame and did not give false responses during rapid engine transients. (Author).
