Abstract

2D temperature and concentration distribution plays an important role for the combustion structure and the combustion efficiency in engines, burners, turbines and so on. Recently, as a multi-species measurement technique with high sensitivity and high response, tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) has been developed and applied to the actual engine combustions. With these engineering developments, transient phenomena such as start-ups and load changes in engines have been gradually elucidated in various conditions. In this study, the theoretical and experimental research has been conducted in order to develop the non-contact and fast response 2D temperature and concentration distribution measurement method. The method is based on a computed tomography (CT) method using absorption spectra of water vapor at 1388nm and 1343nm. The CTTDLAS method was applied to engine exhausts to measure 2D temperature distribution. The measured 2D temperature shows a good agreement with the temperature measured by a thermocouple. The temporal and spatial resolutions of this method have also been discussed to demonstrate its applicability for various types of combustor.
