Abstract:

Progress is reported for the third year of an interdisciplinary program to innovate modern diagnostic techniques for application to reacting flows. Project areas are 1 fiber optic absorptionfluorescence probes for species measurements employing tunable ultraviolet, visable and infrared laser sources 2wavelength modulation spectroscopy, using rapid-scanning ultraviolet, visible and infrared laser sources, for measurements of species, temperature and absorption lineshapes, 3 quantitative flow visualization, including temporally and spatially resolved species measurements in a plane, using laser-induced fluorescence 4 multiple-point velocity visualization 5 plasma diagnostics, utilizing planar laser-induced fluorescence and wavelength modulation techniques 6 diagnostic techniques for thermionic converter plasmas 7 application of advanced diagnostic techniques for studies of turbulent reacting flows 8 development of measurement techniques and a novel facility for investigations of droplet evaporation in turbulent flows 9 holographic display techniques for 3-D visualization of flowfield data 10 coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy CARS for temperature and velocity measurements in a supersonic jet and 11 computed absorption tomography system for species measurements in a plane.
