Two-dimensional two-wavelength emission technique for soot diagnostics.


A two-dimensional soot diagnostic technique has been developed as an extension of the well-known two-color pyrometry. Two flame images are simultaneously collected on a CCD at selected wavelengths through suitable optics. By use of the dependence of soot emissivity on the soot volume fraction and by comparison with images from a calibrated light source, both the temperature field and the soot distribution can be determined. Validation was carried out through data obtained with other soot diagnostic methods on ethylene diffusion and Diesel oil-rich premixed flames. The current technique readily allowed us to obtain a large amount of data for a thorough description of the soot distribution within the flame. As an example of the technique's potential, data about methane and propane diffusion flames are reported.
