Abstract

This study introduces a simple method that enables cross-sectional visualization in the measurement of the planer-laser induced fluorescence (PLIF) method. The concentration field of the high Schmidt number scalar mixing layer generated by grid-generated turbulence is measured by a water-channel experiment in this tudy. The high Schmidt scalar mixing layer is produced by Rhodamine B aqueous solution and water. A small transparent prism, installed on the outside wall of the test section, aids in applying cross-sectional visualization. The small transparent prism is an isosceles triangular shaped prism filled with the working fluid through the test section of the water channel. The setting and details of the small transparent prism are shown in this study. By using the small transparent prism, the concentration field on the plane set into the test section is shown as a result of the cross-sectional visualization. In this result, a scalar structure like a mushroom is visualized around the mixing interface of the scalar mixing layer, as found in a previous experiment.
