Advanced Laser Diagnostics for Flame Wall Interaction

Journal of the Combustion Society of Japan  
Flame quenching resulting from flame-wall interactions (FWIs) is important in several thermochemical processes of practical relevance, such as internal combustion engines. Even though FWIs are restricted to regions close to walls of a combustion chamber, they are crucial for wall heat fluxes and unburned hydrocarbon emissions. This review starts with the discussion about the role of laser diagnostics in FWIs. Following a description of current understanding of FWIs, the focus is on applying

The review closes with a discussion of issues and implications for future experimental researches.
