Abstract

We present quantitative rainbow schlieren deflectometry with tomography for measurements of temperature in three-dimensional gas flows. The schlieren apparatus with a continuously graded spectral filter of known transmissivity was used to create color schlieren images of the test media. These images at multiple viewing angles were used to infer beam deflection angles by the medium. The deflection data were used with a tomographic technique to reconstruct the refractive index and thus the temperature field. The temperature distributions obtained by the rainbow schlieren tomography agreed with those measured by a thermocouple probe. This research demonstrates that tomography can be used with full-field schlieren deflectometry to measure quantitatively temperature in asymmetric gas flows. The technique could be used to obtain related properties such as pressure, density, and gas composition.
