Abstract [en]

The aim of the experiment was to use Schlieren photography to estimate the temperature in a candle plume. The air temperature of the candle plume was measured by measuring refractive index of air. Schlieren photography was performed, in particular, a Z-type Schlieren setup was implemented. Gladstone-Dale’s law was applied in this experiment to relate the light deviation to the temperature of the candle plume. All the temperature estimation were presented in a two dimensional graph. The estimated range of temperature of candle plume was from 15℃ to 80℃ with error of ±5℃.
