An experimental investigation of a premixed kerosene/O2/N2 flame at various stoichiometries has been undertaken to provide a wider database for validation purposes. A premix burner has been designed to burn the multi-component fuel at atmospheric pressure. Particular emphasis is placed on the measurement of intermediate species using non-intrusive techniques such as laser-induced fluorescence for the measurement of OH concentrations. In addition to this, conventional gas analysis techniques were employed in providing concentration profiles of O2, CO2, and CO. Gas samples were withdrawn along the central axis of the flame with a quartz microprobe before being passed through a system of gas analysers. Temperature profiles were obtained using a Pt/Pt-13%Rh thermocouple.
