Abstract

The combustion of lithium-aluminum alloys was studied using computational flame model. The alloy samples were heated inductively in a crucible to temperatures ranging from 1000 to 1400 K. The flame temperature profiles were measured using a lithium resonance line reversal method and relative lithium atom populations in the flame were determined using an absorption method. The results show that lithium burns in the vapor phase and aluminum reacts on the surface or in the bulk phase to form γ-LiAlO2 and β-Li5AlO4.
