Abstract

The structure and soot properties of steady nonbuoyant round laminar jet diffusion flames at microgravity were investigated. The investigation was based on measurements obtained on orbit during three flights of the space shuttle Columbia. The first phase of the study involved evaluation of the classical analysis of the structure of steady nonbuoyant round laminar jet diffusion flames after extending it to account for the presence of luminosity due to the presence of soot within the flames. The analysis showed that flame properties were identical functions of time for nonbuoyant laminar flames.
