Abstract

Stereoscopic imaging and reconstruction of turbulent impinging diffusion flames have been demonstrated. The 3D geometry of the flame surface is reconstructed from any pair of stereo images through digital image processing and computer vision. Only one camera is required to capture the pair of stereo images due to the use of a stereo adapter. As a result the pair of flame images is captured on a single CCD chip. They are then post-processed to produce a 3D geometry of the flame. The 3D results and surface area calculations demonstrate the potential of stereo visualisation, data extraction and the validity of the proposed methodology.
