A method to simultaneously image two-dimensional mixture fraction, scalar dissipation rate, temperature and fuel consumption rate fields in a turbulent non-premixed jet flame

A method to simultaneously image two-dimensional mixture fraction, scalar dissipation rate,... A new imaging technique was developed that provides two-dimensional images of the mixture fraction (ξ), scalar dissipation rate (χ), temperature (T), and fuel consumption rate $$(\dot{\omega}_{\rm F})$$ in a turbulent non-premixed jet flame. The new method is based on “seeding” nitric oxide (NO) into a particular carbon monoxide–air flame in which it remains passive. It is first demonstrated that the mass fraction of NO is a conserved scalar in the present carbon monoxide–air flame configuration, using both laminar flame calibration experiments and computations with full chemistry. Simultaneous planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) and planar Rayleigh scattering temperature imaging allow a quantitative determination of the local NO mass fraction and hence mixture fraction in the turbulent jet flame. The instantaneous mixture fraction fields in conjunction with the local temperature fields are then used to determine quantitative scalar dissipation rate fields. Advantages of the present technique include an improved signal-to-noise ratio over previous Raman scattering techniques, improved accuracy near the stoichiometric contour because simplifying chemistry assumptions are not required, and the ability to measure ξ and χ in flames experiencing localized extinction. However, the method of measuring ξ based on the passive NO is restricted to dry carbon monoxide–air flames due to the well-controlled flame chemistry. Sample imaging results for ξ, χ, T, and $$\dot{\omega}_{\rm F}$$ are presented that show high levels of signal-to-noise while resolving the smallest mixing scales of the turbulent flowfield. The application, accuracy, and limitations of the present technique are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
