Abstract

A technique for obtaining simultaneous quantitative images of the hydroxyl radical, OH, temperature, mixture fraction, and scalar dissipation rates in turbulent diffusion flames is described. Mixture fraction is obtained from images of Rayleigh and fuel Raman scattering. We quantified the OH laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) images using detailed calibration and a correction for quenching and population distribution effects based on the simultaneous mixture fraction and temperature images. This correction was derived from calculations of laminar counterflow diffusion flames for identical fuel mixtures. These laminar flame computations are further used to estimate the errors in the measured OH concentrations. The technique is applied to piloted, nonpremixed flames over a range of jet velocities. The measured mixture fraction, temperature, and OH concentrations are in good agreement with those obtained earlier in similar flames using the single-point Raman/Rayleigh/LIF technique.
