  • The beam from a rapid-tuning single-frequency laser was used to probe the {ital R}{sub 1}(7) and {ital R}{sub 1}(11) {ital A} {sup 2}{Sigma}{sup +} {l arrow} {ital X} {sup 2}{Pi} (0, 0) line pair of OH at a 45{degree} incident angle in a combustion-driven, supersonic free jet. Absorption line shapes were recorded in spatially resolved, single-point fluorescence. The Doppler shift, intensity ratio, and collisional broadening of the measured line pair were used to determine velocity, temperature, and pressure. The repetition rate of the measurement was 3 kHz.
  • Several laser diagnostic measurement techniques have been applied to study the lean premixed natural gas/air flames of an industrial swirl burner. This was made possible by equipping the burner with an optical combustion chamber that was installed in the high-pressure test rig facility at the DLR Institute of Combustion Technology in Stuttgart. The burner was operated with preheated air at various operating conditions with pressures up to p = 6 bar and a maximum thermal power of P = 1 MW. The instantaneous planar flow field inside the combustor was studied with particle image velocimetry (PIV). Planar laser induced fluorescencemore » (PLIF) of OH radicals on a single-shot basis was used to determine the shape and the location of the flame front as well as the spatial distribution of reaction products. 1D laser Raman spectroscopy was successfully applied for the measurement of the temperature and the concentration of major species under realistic gas turbine conditions. Results of the flow field analysis show the shape and the size of the main flow regimes: the inflow region, the inner and the outer recirculation zone. The highly turbulent flow field of the inner shear layer is found to be dominated by small and medium sized vortices. High RMS fluctuations of the flow velocity in the exhaust gas indicate the existence of a rotating exhaust gas swirl. From the PLIF images it is seen that the primary reactions happened in the shear layers between inflow and the recirculation zones and that the appearance of the reaction zones changed with flame parameters. The results of the multiscalar Raman measurements show a strong variation of the local mixture fraction allowing conclusions to be drawn about the premix quality. Furthermore, mixing effects of unburnt fuel and air with fully reacted combustion products are studied giving insights into the processes of the turbulence-chemistry interaction. (author)« less
  • An intracavity-doubled rapid-tuning cw ring dye laser was used to acquire fully resolved absorption profiles of NO line pairs in the {ital A} {l arrow} {ital X} band at 225 nm at a rate of 4 kHz. These profiles were utilized for simultaneous measurements of flow parameters in the high speed 1-D flows generated in a shock tube. Velocity was determined from the Doppler shift measured using a pair of profiles simultaneously acquired at different angles with respect to the flow direction. Temperature was determined from the intensity ratio of the measured lines. Pressure and density were found both frommore » the collisional broadening and the fractional absorption. From this information the mass flux was determined. The results compare well to 1-D shock calculations.« less
  • Shear viscosity [{eta}{equivalent_to}{alpha}{times}(massdensity){times}(diffusivity)] and parallel flow velocity [M{sub {infinity}}{times}{radical}((T{sub e}+T{sub i})/m{sub i})] of tokamak edge plasma were simultaneously measured in the Texas Experimental Tokamak-Upgrade (TEXT-U) tokamak by using a {open_quotes}Visco-Mach{close_quotes} probe with the iteration method (VMPI) [K-S. Chung, Nucl. Fusion {bold 34}, 1213 (1994)]. The VMPI was composed of two Mach probes measuring two ratios of ion saturation current densities, with the small Mach probe located within the free presheath generated by the large Mach probe (LMP). Radial variations of the normalized shear viscosity, {alpha}, and parallel Mach number, M{sub {infinity}}, for typical discharges were deduced from two measured ratiosmore » of ion saturation current densities, and plasma density from ion saturation currents by LMP. Here {alpha} varied from 0.7 to 1.3 with an estimated error of {plus_minus}40{percent}, and M{sub {infinity}} from 0 to 0.2 for 0{lt}r{minus}r{sub l}{lt}4.5cm, where r{sub l}=27cm is the limiter radius. Also, {alpha} and M{sub {infinity}} increased with the radial direction, while cross-field diffusivity (D{sub {perpendicular}}) was approximately constant. Here D{sub {perpendicular}} is obtained as {approximately}3D{sub B}, where a typical Bohm diffusivity (D{sub B}) is {approximately}1m{sup 2}/s. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}« less
