Joint measurements and sample data evaluation for the LII workshop 2005 in Duisburg

Target flames

What should be measured?
The aim of the conference is the comparison of the LII measurement results in terms of soot volume fraction, mean particle size and width of the particle size distribution. It is important to closely stick to the operating conditions and measuring locations mentioned below. If additional quantities (temperature, gas-phase concentration, attenuation, scattering, TEM sampling) can be provided from the respective labs, the data would be most welcome.

Which flames are preferred?
Three different target flames have been chosen that are frequently used for fundamental studies or for calibration. We hope that each lab has access to at least one of these burner configurations. In case of the availability of all flames, we would suggest to perform measurements from all the configurations possible. If no burner is available, please consider to build one. The drawings of a Santoro burner can be downloaded from the website or can be sent on request. We will monitor the process and might come up with suggestions in case it turns out that the group clearly prefers one or two of the suggested configurations

How is the project organized?
The following instructions should contain the relevant information about the flame configurations and measurement conditions.
To facilitate co-ordination: Please send a message to Max Hofmann ( before July, 18 and answer the following questions:

  • Which flame(s) will be investigated
  • Which measurements will be performed (LII + additional measurements)

On the workshop the results obtained by the various groups will be compared and potential reasons for discrepancies will be discussed.
In case you want to participate but do not have access to any of the suggested burner configurations: Please contact Max to discuss possibilities of providing a burner for a limited time.
