This report documents the design of a colinear flow burner and staging arrangements for the study of soot formations with Ryerson’s clean energy and combustion research group.
Soot is a common product of combustion. Its pollutant forms of black carbon are significant contributors to radiative forcing and causes negative health effects. Soot within a flame can be located by the luminosity of the flame. The visible yellow, orange and red light released by a flame results from incandescent soot particles. For the purpose of studying soot a burner that provides a controllable nonpremixed laminar flame is required.
The proposed burner and surrounding set up is designed with as many off the shelf parts as possible limiting the need for custom machining to the burner body. The project consists of designing the burner body, arranging the staging for the burner and tables for the experiment instruments including the soot sensor camera.
