Optical diagnostics in reactive flows
Different sectors such as rocket engines, gas turbines, IC engines, coal gasifiers, industrial burners for nanoparticles generation etc. involve spray combustion process.
Hence, it is important to perform various measurements and investigations in the combusting/reactive flow environment.
Nanoparticle generation through coaxial airblast atomization.
Non-intrusive optical diagnostic techniques used: (a) Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) for investigating the velocity of the spray droplets in the absence and presence of flame, (b) Two-dimensional Multi-Angle Light Scattering ( 2D-MALS) to investigate the size of nanoparticles generated after spray combustion.
