Abstract

The relationship between the phenomenology of the combustion (i.e. the shapes of the flames and their motion) and the combustion settings is easily seen but is not well understood; this is primarily because of the lack of idoneous measuring systems. This article describes the development of a system for the 3-D reconstruction and the dynamical-morfological characterization of industrial flames. The system is able to reconstruct a three dimensional geometric model of the flame by taking tree (or more) simultaneous pictures of the flame. The images taken are processed in order to extract the contours of the flame, then the contours are interpolated by a reconstruction algorithm to produce tile 3-D model of the flame. Once the geometric model is obtained it is possible to measure several morphological parameters that may be used to characterize the combustion process. The system described has applications both in research (analysis of turbulent flames phenomenology or characterization of industrial burners) and industrial applications (automatic systems for the control and regulation of industrial sites).
