Quantitative laser diagnostics for combustion

Abstract:

Quantitative Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (QPLIF) is developed as a diagnostic technique and then applied to a prototype Jaguar optical internal combustion engine. QPLIF derives quantitative, two-dimensional, spatially-resolved measurements of fuel concentration. This work reports the first demonstration of a fully-fractionated surrogate fuel which exhibits all the characteristics of a typical gasoline. This 'pseudo' fuel, developed in association with Shell UK, is blended to acce...
