Presentation by: Prof. Hugh McCann (School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Manchester, UK)
The presentation starts with an introduction to tomography, which is comparable to MRI in medical applications. X-ray CT can be used for fast non-chemically specific tomography (temporal resolution in O = 10 ms). Electrical capacitence tomography can be used to follow the solids distribution in fluidized beds. Near IR absorption tomography can be used to follow the dynamics of fuel mixing in combustion research (automotive, gas turbines); this is most extensively addressed in the presentation. Compounds that can be followed include hydrocarbons, O2, NO, CO, CO2 and water vapour. Advantage is that the technique is also applicable to hostile systems.
