Abstract

This paper presents the 3-D (three-dimensional) reconstruction of soot volume fraction of diffusion flames based on tomographic imaging and image processing techniques. Eight flexible imaging fiber bundles and two RGB (Red, Green and Blue) CCD (Charge-coupled Device) cameras are used to obtain concurrently the 2-D (two-dimensional) image projections of the flame from eight different angles of view around the burner. Algorithms which combine the tomographic and two-color pyrometric techniques are utilized to reconstruct the soot volume fraction distributions on both cross- and longitudinal-sections of the flame. A series of experiments were carried out on a gas-fired combustion rig for the determination of soot volume fraction using the algorithms proposed. Test results demonstrate the effectiveness of the developed algorithms.
