Abstract:

We report the results of experimental and numerical investigations of fluid mechanics in reacting and high-speed nonreacting flows. For these experiments, the primary focus was on the development and application of advanced laser-based diagnostics for quantitative measurements of 1 temperature coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy of N2 and molecular filtered Rayleigh scattering in reacting subsonic flows, 2 species concentration OH, CH, NO, CO, and acetone laser-induced fluorescence also in reacting subsonic flows, and 3 velocity particle-imaging velocimetry and filtered Rayleigh scattering in both subsonic and supersonic flows.
