Abstract:

A laser Raman spectroscopy apparatus has been used to obtain temperature and major species N2, H2, CO, cO2, and H2O concentration measurements in the burnt gas region of CH4N2O flames. Temperatures measured were in the range of 2100 to 2500 K with computed errors of less than 50 K. The concentration measurements are in good agreement with thermochemical equilibrium calculations.
