Abstract

We report a series of Raman-Rayleigh-LIF measurements in two turbulent natural-gas jet diffusion flames produced by the Delft piloted jet diffusion flame burner. The main objective of the Raman-Rayleigh-LIF measurements was to obtain detailed information on the major species concentrations in the flames. The measurements provide simultaneous data on temperature, the concentrations of the major species and the radicals OH and NO and mixture fraction. The application of the Raman technique in the undiluted natural-gas flames proves to be very challenging because of the high fluorescence interference levels. The interference contributions to the recorded Raman signals are identified and subtracted using empirical correlations between the Raman signals and the signals on fluorescence interference monitor channels. The calibration and data reduction of the Raman-Rayleigh and LIF signals are discussed in detail. The resulting dataset compares excellently with data from previous experiments. Because the Raman-Rayleigh-LIF data provide quantitative concentrations and accordingly quantitative mixture fractions, they form a valuable and useful extension of the existing database for the Delft piloted jet diffusion flame burner.
