Simultaneous imaging of temperature and mole fraction using acetone planar laser-induced fluorescence

Simultaneous imaging of temperature and mole fraction using acetone planar laser-induced... Imaging of concentration with acetone PLIF has become popular in mixing investigations. More recently, studies of the temperature dependences of acetone fluorescence have enabled quantitative imaging of temperature using single- or dual-wavelength excitation strategies. We present here the first demonstration of simultaneous imaging of temperature and mole fraction with acetone PLIF. Laser excitation is at 248 and 308 nm; the resulting fluorescence images are captured by an interline transfer CCD camera capable of acquiring two frames with a separation in time of as little as 500 ns. In addition to adding temperature imaging capability, this dual-wavelength approach enables mole fraction to be accurately measured in non-isothermal flows. Tests in a heated turbulent jet demonstrate the ability to record instantaneous mole fraction and temperature structure. The expected correspondence of the temperature and concentration fields is observed, and mean values of these quantities derived from image averaging show the expected radial and centerline profiles as the jet becomes fully developed.
