Abstract

The influence of pressure on laser-induced incandescence (LII) is investigated systematically in premixed, laminar, sooting ethylene/air flames at 1–15 bar with wavelength-, laser fluence-, and time-resolved detection. In the investigated pressure range the LII signal decay rate is proportional to pressure. This observation is consistent with the prediction of heat-transfer models in the free-molecular regime. Pressure does not systematically affect the relationship between LII signal and laser fluence. With appropriate detection timing the pressure influence on LII signal’s proportionality to soot volume fraction obtained by extinction measurements is only minor compared with the variation observed in different flames at fixed pressures. The implications for particle sizing and soot volume fraction measurements using LII techniques at elevated pressures are discussed.
