Abstract

We used a two-angle scattering technique to investigate the soot distribution in an ethylene diffusion flame in conjunction with extinction measurements. In the framework of a fractal description, we introduced a modified structure factor to interpret the scattering intensity from polydisperse aggregates. The connection between a mean value of a structural radius of gyration, Rgm1 , and the quantities experimentally measured was then established. Soot parameters (volume fraction, particle size, and number densities) were determined along three radial sections of a 8-cm high-diffusion flame. The stability of the results with respect to the parameters of the distribution function was studied.
