Title: High temperature measurement using very high shutter speed to avoid image saturation

Abstract

This paper explores the adaptation of the two-colour principle to develop a high-speed colour temperature correlation system, which is able to cover a range of temperature that is challenging to achieve before. A colour digital camera has built in RGB filters. It is possible to measure the temperature from the ratio of intensity of the green and red pixels using the two-colour principle based on the expansion of the Plank’s radiation law. In this study, experiments were carried out using a temperature calibrated tungsten ribbon lamp which can be tuned to vary from 1300 to 2200°C. Using very high shutter speed and small aperture, the high-speed camera successfully captured the tungsten ribbon without image saturation at the full temperature scale. Tests have been carried out at different temperature and camera settings. The sensitivity and errors have been analysed, and experiment results demonstrate the potential of using very high shutter speed is available for measuring the temperature even beyond 2200°C.

  • A two-color high speed shutter TV camera system has been developed as a new sensing device for measuring the flame temperature in engines. The TV camera system can measure the radiant intensities of high temperature substances accurately and rapidly. And, the two-dimensional temperature distribution can be easily calculated from the radiant intensities by using an image processor. This system is applicable to measurement of flame temperature in diesel and gasoline engines. The relation between the progress of combustion phenomena and the measured temperature distribution is clearly explained. It is confirmed that the system is effective for measurement of the flamemore » temperature distribution in engines.« less
  • A laboratory instrument that uses a commercially available image- converter tube as a fast shutter for very short exposure photographs of high velocity self-luminous phenomena is described. Exposure times of 10 m mu sec are obtained with pulses derived from a line pulse circuit having a coaxially constructed thyratron switch. The equipment may also be used for streak photography with a choice of sweep times in the range 1 to 25 mu sec. (auth)
  • Osmotic coefficients for the CaCl{sub 2}-H{sub 2}O system between 25 and 250 C and from the dilute region to solid saturation or beyond (i.e., to {approx}12 mCaCl{sub 2} at the lowest temperature and {approx}32 mCaCl{sub 2} at the highest) have been correlated using the following permutations and modifications of the basic Pitzer ion-interaction equation: (1) the basic Pitzer equation, (2) the Pitzer equation augmented by an ionic strength-dependent third virial contribution, (3) the Pitzer equation together with equilibria involving the formation of CaCl{sup +} and CaCl{sub 2}{sup 0}, and (4) the simultaneous combination of all of the above. The effectiveness,more » accuracy, and practicality of each approach are reviewed.« less
  • Measuring deformation of vibrating specimens whose dimensions are in the submillimeter range introduces a number of difficulties using laser interferometry. Normal interferometry is not suitable because of a phase ambiguity problem. In addition, the noise effect is much more serious in the measurement of small objects because a high-magnification lens is used. We present a method for full-field measurement of displacement, velocity, and acceleration of a vibrating miniature object based on image-plane digital holographic microscopy. A miniature cantilever beam is excited by a piezoelectric transducer stage with a sinusoidal configuration. A sequence of digital holograms is captured using a high-speedmore » digital holographic microscope. Windowed Fourier analysis is applied in the spatial and spatiotemporal domains to extract the displacement, velocity and acceleration. The result shows that a combination of image-plane digital holographic microscopy and windowed Fourier analyses can be used to study vibration without encountering a phase ambiguity problem, and one can obtain instantaneous kinematic parameters on each point.« less
