The Constant Volume Combustion Bomb
The Constant Volume Bomb Design
This GTRC constant volume combustion bomb is designed for filming the outward propagation of spherical flames, and the subsequent measurement of laminar flame speed.
High-speed Example of Spherical Flame Propagation
The system can be employed in two-phase configuration, utilising adiabatic decompression to form a quasi-homogeneous mist. A picture of the system with two-phase control pistons, and laser dropplet-sizer is shown below.
