Abstract [en]

The Schlieren technique is widely used for studying transparent media due to its noninvasion and sensitivity to changes in refractive index. In this report, we make use of a Z-type Schlieren imaging system for measurement of gas temperature distribution in a candle plume. The index of refraction gradients were corresponding to the intensity of each pixel of the image. We get the temperature distribution of air surrounding the candle by the relationship between temperature and refractive index. In the experiment, we obtain the temperature distribution of air surrounding the candle, ranging from 1272 K to 287 K with respect to the radial distance of candle plume. Compare with the measured results from thermal couple, the Schlieren technique for measure temperature of medium is much feasible.
