Abstract

Phenomena such as flame propation, flame/spray interaction and flame stabilization during the transient ignition process in a cryogenic model rocket combustor are investigated on sub-millisecond time scale. Diagnostic techniques developed to characterize the stationary spray flame are applied to investigate the transient evolution of the LOX-spray and the flame front during the ignition process. Ignition is initiated by focusing a pulsed laser into the combustion chamber. Thus, ignition time as well as the position of ignition is well defined. This and the exact control of the delay between ignition and detection time allowed the observation of the evolution of the flame front. The distribution of the liquid oxygen phase and the velocity of LOX droplets and ligaments are determined by light sheet techniques using a double-pulsed laser system. Simultaneously the position of the flame front is measured by recording the spontaneous emission of the OH-radical. By varying the delay time between ignition and detection in a series of test runs, the transient ignition phenomena has been investigated in the interval from 0 to 5 ms after ignition.
