Abstract

Spray characteristics in the swirling flow were investigated by Stereoscopic PIV. Spatial spray structures were measured by PIV as well as PDA in order to understand stable flame stabilization. The feasibility study of Stereoscopic PIV in spray flame was also demonstrated. The size and location of recirculation flow were measured. The stereoscopic PIV could provide 3-D flow fluctuation that cannot be measured by convectional measurement systems.
