A 3D LIF system for turbulent buoyant jet flows

A 3D LIF system for turbulent buoyant jet flows A Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF) system for mapping the three dimensional tracer concentration field in turbulent flows is described. The system is particularly suited to studies of single or multiple buoyant jets discharged into unstratified and stratified flowing environments for conditions typical of wastewater discharges into surface water bodies. A laser beam is scanned through the flow and LIF images are obtained in parallel planes with a high-speed synchronized CCD camera. Refractive index matching is used to minimize refractive index variations due to local density gradients. An application to vertical round buoyant jets discharging into unstratified and stratified cross flows is presented.

Abstract

A Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF) system for mapping the three dimensional tracer concentration field in turbulent flows is described. The system is particularly suited to studies of single or multiple buoyant jets discharged into unstratified and stratified flowing environments for conditions typical of wastewater discharges into surface water bodies. A laser beam is scanned through the flow and LIF images are obtained in parallel planes with a high-speed synchronized CCD camera. Refractive index matching is used to minimize refractive index variations due to local density gradients. An application to vertical round buoyant jets discharging into unstratified and stratified cross flows is presented. The three-dimensional system can obtain vastly more data than is possible with probe-based techniques and can yield far more insight into the flow and mixing processes.
