Abstract

Spontaneous Raman scattering and laser-induced fluorescence are combined to perform simultaneous point measurements of major species concentrations, temperature, and hydroxyl radical concentration in turbulent nonpremixed flames. The Raman-scattering data for major species concentrations and temperature characterize the instantaneous, local, collisional quenching environment of the OH molecule. Collisional quenching corrections are applied for each laser shot so that absolute hydroxyl concentrations are obtained in turbulent flames using linear laser-induced fluorescence.
