A Study on a Technique of the Measurement of Flame Temperature and Soot Using the Two-color Method in Diesel Engines Lee, Tae-Won; Lee, Seon-Bong;
The instantaneous flame temperature and soot formation and oxidation in a D.I. diesel engine are measured using a two-color method. The proposed method based on the continuous spectral radiation from the soot particles in the flame is applicable to industrial diesel engines without major modifications of their main characteristics. Measurements are performed at one location inside the combustion chamber of a D.I. diesel engine. Effects of different engine speeds and loads on flame temperature and KL factor which is an index of soot concentration were examined. Little temperature change were observed with increasing rpm, while increased with loads. The higher the flame temperature is, the lower the KL factor is.
