See, size and seize the flame: the emotion project

Combustion Bay One.e.U. works currently in co-operation with FH Joanneum/Aviation on the development of an embedded optical sensor for real-time monitoring of the flame condition in aeroengine combustors.

This feasibility study is financed by the Take-Off programme from the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).

 

  

The very promising first results will soon be presented at the following conference:

Kraft, G., Giuliani, F., Pfefferkorn, L. and Andracher, L.
Toward embedded optical measurement techniques for precision combustion monitoring in aeroengines
Proceedings of the XXIIIth Biannual Symposium on Measuring Techniques in Turbomachinery
Stuttgart, Germany,1 - 2 September 2016

Infrared absorption is specific to alcanes. Thus, with a specific apparatus, one can determine the effectiveness of combined fuel atomisation and vaporisation. In a word, one can cartography the fuel placement.

Heat fluctuation measurements in a flame using a lightweight laser method (journal publication)

Monitoring combustion stability with an interferometric method was validated by a team composed of CBOne members, TU Graz staff and of CNRS researchers.

The results are published in the journal "Combustion and Flame".
