An investigation of the mixing and radiation properties
of buoyant turbulent diffusion flames is described. The
study was divided into two phases: (1) the structure
and mixing properties of buoyant turbulent plumes, which
must be understood in order to resolve effects of
turbulence/radiation interactions and to benchmark
models of buoyant turbulent flows; and (2) the fractal
and structure properties of soot aggregates, which must
be understood in order to develop nonintrusive methods
for measuring soot properties and to estimate the
continuous radiation and heterogeneous reaction
properties of soot in flame environments.
