Interactions between isolated scalars in turbulent flows


A two-channel PLIF technique is described that allows multiple scalars to be measured simultaneously and independently from each other. The system is used to measure scalars emitted from parallel round jets. The resulting data of the scalar fields gives insight into how the two scalars evolve and eventually coalesce in the turbulent field. These results are useful in understanding the physics of both reactive and non-reactive mixing in a wide variety of flows.
