Abstract:

This grant enabled the purchase of a Spin Physics S-2000 high-speed digital camera system for use on research on turbulent reacting flows. The camera system has been employed to obtain high-speed schlieren images of pulsed jet flames and of the flow field in a dump plane combustor. In addition, the camera system has been coupled to a pulsed copper vapor laser to obtain planar images of Mie scattering from small refractory seed particles in reacting flows. These particle images can be used to obtain instantaneous planar images of the velocity field. JHD
