Combustion at the focus: laser diagnostics and control

Kohse-Hoinghaus, K; Barlow, R S; Aldén, Marcus LU and Wolfrum, E (2005) In Symposium (International) on Combustion 30(1). p.89-123
Abstract
Fifty years after the foundation of the Combustion Institute and almost 150 years after Michael Faraday's famous lectures on the combustion of a candle, combustion diagnostics have come a long way from visual inspection of a flame to detailed analysis of a combustion process with a multitude of sophisticated techniques, often using lasers. The extended knowledge on combustion phenomena gained by application of these diagnostic techniques, combined with equally advanced numerical simulation of the process, has been instrumental in designing modern combustion devices with efficient performance and reduced pollutant emission. Also, similar diagnostic techniques are now employed to develop sensors for process control in combustion. This... (More)
Fifty years after the foundation of the Combustion Institute and almost 150 years after Michael Faraday's famous lectures on the combustion of a candle, combustion diagnostics have come a long way from visual inspection of a flame to detailed analysis of a combustion process with a multitude of sophisticated techniques, often using lasers. The extended knowledge on combustion phenomena gained by application of these diagnostic techniques, combined with equally advanced numerical simulation of the process, has been instrumental in designing modern combustion devices with efficient performance and reduced pollutant emission. Also, similar diagnostic techniques are now employed to develop sensors for process control in combustion. This article intends to give a perspective on the potential of combustion diagnostics by highlighting selected application examples and by guiding the reader to recent literature. In particular, techniques are emphasized, which permit measurement of important features of the chemical composition, sometimes in conjunction with flow field parameters. Although a complete image of present research and applications in combustion diagnostics and control is beyond the scope of this article, this overview may be a starting place where ideas may be found to solve specific combustion problems with the aid of diagnostics.
