Abstract

This paper focuses on the application of a multicamera imaging system for three-dimensional (3-D) visualization and quantitative characterization of the flame front structures of a turbulent flame. The 2-D images of the flame front are captured simultaneously using identical monochromatic CCD cameras from three different directions around the flame. Dedicated computing algorithms have been developed to reconstruct the 3-D structures of the flame front using various image processing techniques such as edge detection, contour extraction, and mesh generation. A set of flame parameters, including ignition points, ignition volume, ignition surface area, and circularity, is determined from the models generated to characterize the flame front. Results obtained under a range of combustion conditions demonstrate the capability of the system for 3-D quantitative characterization of flame front structures
