Flame Propagation Characteristics by Planar OH* Measurement 1999-01-3326
The purpose of this study is to reveal the flame propagation characteristics. Planar OH* image and local radical emission were measured simultaneously. Planar OH* images were used to analyze the flame propagation characteristics by high-speed camera. These images were then used to evaluate the speed of distribution and the direction of flame propagation. By comparing local point radical emission and planar OH*, the flame propagation characteristics was measured and evaluate that. And the time history of the radical intensity and planar OH* distribution were compared. The relation ship between flame propagation speed and initial heat generation was discussed. The variation of flame propagation speed and the difference of propagation speed in both port sides were confirmed.
