Abstract:

Studies of premixed turbulent flame propagation have been carried out using laser tomography, two-point Rayleigh scattering, and combined Rayleigh-LDV single point measurements. Probability density functions of intermediate states, correlation coefficients and correlation length scales within the reaction zone have been measured. A theoretical model has been developed which predicts these quantities, and very good agreement between theory and experiment is obtained.
