Abstract:

IR emission and absorption spectra of flames of various fuels and oxidizers were measured under known, controlled conditions. Results of liquid hydrocarbon-oxygen flame measurements in the 4 to 15 micron region at one atmosphere pressure, and at reduced pressures in the 1 to 5 micron region, are presented. The effect of pressure is to lower the emissivity, due to the lowered gas density in the optical path. Spectral measurements of emissivity, emittance, and temperature were completed for NH3-O flames from 1 to 15 microns and for N2H4-O flames from 1 to 5 microns. Gaseous C3H6-O and H-O flames were also studied. Author
