The accurate measurement of flame-generated particlates
is a problem of current interest to researchers in the
fire and combustion community. Within the flame, the
soot concentration measurement is central to the study
of soot growth and for radiant transport analysis. In
the post-flame region of large fires, particulate
measurements are important in developing computational
modeling of smoke plume movement, in the detection
fires, in assessing the reduction in visibility arising
from a fire within a building and for estimating the
health and environmental impacts.
