Below are a list of links to documents discussing gasifiers that were fielded during WW2 and earlier:

Here's a very interesting collection of graphs for old gasifier system.  the basic profile view of each shows reactor design and system component detail.  this is the largest single collection i've found to date (fall, 2010)

Thanks Stephen. This all good information. I can SEE WHY you posted the Richard Hill stove piece. The ancestry of my 73% efficient clean woodburning modern stove lives there. Along with all of those good wood burning charts, refractory concrete and supporting math. DanielC. my question about the volume changed ratio between unburned wood to produced gases is answered here. And for us math challenged and any CHP people the worded and pictured last 5 page summery is a gold mine. Again Thanks!!
