Paper Abstract

Infrared technology finds many applications in the field of combustion, ranging from pollution monitoring, through military systems, to the control of industrial furnaces and boilers. This review of some selected concepts highlights the interaction between the diagnostic role of infrared measurements and the current status of mathematical modelling of combustion systems. The link between measurement and computing has also evolved to the point where a digital processor is becoming an inherent part of many new instruments. This point is illustrated by reference to the diffraction particle size meter, fire detection and alarm systems, and furnace control. In the future, as fuels become scarce and expensive, and micro-electronics become more available and inexpensive, it is certain that infra-red devices will find increasing application in smaller industries and the home.
