The concentration of the OH radical in a stoichiometric methane-air flat flame at atmospheric pressure was measured with both laser-absorption spectroscopy and molecular-beam mass spectrometry (MBMS).

Quartz-microprobe sampling followed by wavelength modulation absorption spectroscopy with second harmonic detection was used to obtain an overall measurement uncertainty of better than 20% for mole fractions HCN on the order of 10 ppm.

release of an unconfined, turbulent methane-air swirl flame from laser optical and chemiluminescence measurements. For optimal optical access the perfectly premixed flame is operated unconfined. As a consequence the air-fuel ratio of the flame is not constant due to ambient air entrainment. Therefore, the unconfined flame is aFile Size: 1MB.

United States. doi/ The application of tunable diode lasers for in situ diagnostics in laminar hydrocarbon diffusion flames is demonstrated. By the use of both direct-absorption and wavelength-modulation (second-derivative) techniques, carbon monoxide concentrations and the local flame temperature are determined for a laminar methane–air diffusion flame supported on a Wolfhard–Parker slot burner. The effects of Hydrogen addition in lean Methane/Air premixed turbulent flames are investigated in a Bunsen type burner using Laser Doppler Velocimetry. The Hydrogen content is varied between 0% and 20% in volume of the total fuel inside the mixture, keeping constant the equivalence ratio. All measurements are carried out in the pressure range.

  Quantitative measurements of radical concentrations are important in studies of the structure of flames. In this research, a quantitative analysis was performed using laser-induced predissociative fluorescence of OH radicals (OH-LIPF) in high-pressure (1–5 atm) premixed methane-air and propane-air flat flames (ϕ = –).OH was excited (A 2 Σ +, ν′ = 3 − X 2 Π, ν″=0, and P 2 8 Cited by: 2.

The peak of N at is also visible but not well resolved. As the intensity of each spectral line is proportional to. Reducing vehicle pollutant emissions and fuel consumption is becoming more and more important challenges, while lean-burning are a promising development. However, lean-burning may leads to other problems including combustion instability and incomplete combustion. Recently, laser ignition system has become an attractive field of research in order to replace the conventional spark plug ignition Author: Hong Tao Wang, Cang Su Xu.
