Abstract : We report the results of experimental and numerical investigations of fluid mechanics in reacting and high-speed nonreacting flows. For these experiments, the primary focus was on the development and application of advanced laser-based diagnostics for quantitative measurements of: (1) temperature (coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy of N2 and molecular filtered Rayleigh scattering) in reacting subsonic flows, (2) species concentration (OH, CH, NO, CO, and acetone laser-induced fluorescence) also in reacting subsonic flows, and (3) velocity (particle-imaging velocimetry and filtered Rayleigh scattering) in both subsonic and supersonic flows.
