Abstract

A laminar co-flow wick-fed diffusion flame burner for use with liquid hydrocarbon fuels was developed. Flame height stabilization was achieved by the use of a "conditioned" wick. Line of sight extinction measurements were deconvoluted to yield the soot volume fractions at different heights in diffusion flames fueled with isooctane and a mixture of isooctane and trimethyl benzene. The results are compared with those from similar flames available in the literature.
