Abstract

An experiment has been conducted to determine the variation in light scattering characteristics of refractory oxide particles (TiO//2 and Al//2O//3) as they pass through a laminar pre-mixed hydrogen-air flame. It was found that Al//2O//3 was not affected by the flame but TiO//2 particles exhibited a substantial reduction in scattered light intensities. In addition the effect of agglomeration on particle light scattering measurements of the fluctuating concentration field in a turbulent flame was evaluated with the use of Mie scattering computations. The broadness of the initial particle size distribution was found to be a dominant parameter. Measurements using nearly monodisperse aerosols were most sensitive to agglomeration.
