Exact and approximate expressions for &#967;(<sup>3</sup>) in CARS diagnostics measurements

E. Yarkoni; Y. Prior IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics, 1984

Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) is a useful tool in combustion diagnostics. In such experiments, the measured spectrum is compared to the predicted one and information is obtained about species temperature and concentration. We examine conditions for the validity of approximate expressions for the nonlinear susceptibilitychi^{(3)}and indicate the importance of using the full expression in the general case, especially near ...

  • Biomass Burning and Climate

    The burning of biomass - forests, grasslands, and agricultural fields after the harvest - is much more widespread and extensive than previously believed; most biomass burning is thought to be initiated by humans and is on the increase. This comprehensive volume is the first to consider biomass burning as a global phenomenon and to assess its impact on the atmosphere, on climate, and on the biosphere itself. The 63 chapters by 158 scientists - including leading biomass burn researchers from third-world countries, such as Brazil, Nigeria, Zaire, India, and China, where biomass burning is so prevalent - point to biomass burning as a significant driver of global change on our planet.Global Biomass Burning provides a convenient and current reference on such topics as the remote sensing of biomass burning from space, the geographical distribution of burning; the combustion products of burning in tropical, temperate, and boreal ecosystems; burning as a global source of atmospheric gases and particulates; the impact of biomass burning gases and particulates on global climate; and the role of biomass burning on biodiversity and past global extinctions.Also included are contributions on the importance of biomass burning from the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program: A Study of Global Change and from the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project, as well as policy options prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for managing biomass burning to mitigate global climate change.Joel S. Levine is Senior Research Scientist in the Atmospheric Sciences Division, NASA Langley Research Center and is the Principal Investigator of NASA's research program on global biomass burning, Biospheric Research Program, Office of Space Sciences and Applications.

  • Reciprocating Engines

    Smaller generators may use diesel oil or gas???fired reciprocating engines for their prime movers. Reciprocating engines are smaller in power ratings than their turbine counterpart prime movers, so the connected generator will have a smaller kVA rating. This chapter discusses the basic ideal Otto thermodynamic cycle. The thermodynamic process for the ignition combustion engine is defined by the Otto cycle, which is similar to the Brayton combustion cycle that describes the combustion process for gas turbines where there are four processes in the combustion cycle: compression, combustion, expansion, and exhaust. There are two main types of reciprocating engines: two???stroke and four???stroke engines. Theoretically, in the process of the ideal Otto cycle, the entire combustion process takes place instantaneously at top dead center (TDC). For some types of fuel, the combustion is initiated with a spark plug while for other types, the compression alone generates enough heat to cause combustion.
