Abstract

Numerical analysis and experimental results are presented to define a method for quantitatively measuring the temperature distribution of a spherical diffusion flame using rainbow schlieren deflectometry in microgravity. The method employed illustrates the necessary steps for the preliminary design of a rainbow schlieren system. The largest deflection for the normal gravity flame considered in this paper is 7.4 × 10 4 rad, which can be accurately measured with 2 m focal-length collimating and decollimating optics. The experimental uncertainty of deflection is less than 5 × 10 5 rad.
