Combustion processes occur in many modern technologies, such as: power production, heating, automotive and aircraft engines and even explosion research.

The application areas range from fuel injection and mixing and flow velocity information, to measurements of combustion species and soot concentration.

Because of the impact on the global climate and the limited resources of fossil fuels, the importance of these applications is increasing, especially with respect to performance, fuel economy and CO2 emissions.

Combustion Applications

Application Notes

Velocity characterization of NIST’s reference spray combustion facility using stereoscopic PIV

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) offers a cost-effective alternative to experiments, and it is increasingly being used to solve realistic problems in many engineering areas. However, befor[…]

Flow characterization of flickering methane/air laminar diffusion flames using PIV

Vortex interactions with flames play a key role in many practical combustion applications. Such interactions form the basis for understanding naturally flickering buoyancy-dominated diffusio[…]

LIF vs. Chemiluminescence measurements for flame front studies

LIF (Laser-Induced Fluorescence) imaging of OH is a widely employed technique for flame front studies in reacting flows. This technique covers application areas from laboratory burners to tr[…]

Velocity Measurements in Hydrogen Flames using LDA and PIV

The transition from the use of hydrocarbons to alternative fuels such as hydrogen is expected to be a very complex and expensive task. A detailed analysis of the fuel and oxidant mixing proc[…]
