Paper Abstract

Our objective is the development of an infrared system which is able to measure the temperature of a droplet, in order to validate theoretical kinetics models of heating and vaporization. A mathematical model has been derived to compute the performance in terms of sensitivity (signal-noise ratio) of an experimental system that measures the temperature of a methanol droplet using IR thermography. Based on that simulation, an experimental system working in the long wavelength range [8 - 12 micrometers ], has been built and characterized in terms of temperature calibration, and in terms of space and temperature resolutions. Then the system has been used to measure the temperature of a fixed methanol evaporating droplet. Finally, we propose a technique to track a moving droplet injected in a aerothermodynamic facility and simultaneously to measure its temperature and eventually its diameter along the trajectory.
