Diffusion Flame Measurements

Return to Diffusion Flame Measurements: Notes A

Return to Diffusion Flame Measurements: Notes B

Profiles of species concentrations (mole fraction), temperature (K), and velocity (cm/s) are presented, as well as profiles of the mixture fraction and scalar dissipation rate. Species include Ar, CH, CH3, C2H2, C6H6, CH2O, CH4, CO, CO2, H2, H2O, H atom, N2, NO, O2, and O atom.

These downloadable data files are formatted as ASCII text files, and should be usable in any word processor.  If inappropriate wrapping occurs, it should be easily fixed by making your page bigger, your font smaller, your margins wider, etc.
