A study was performed to better understand the scaling of the stoichiometric mixing length in reacting and nonreacting coaxial jets with velocity ratios greater than one and density ratios less than one. A facility was developed that incorporates a single shear coaxial injector in a laboratory rocket engine capable of ten atmospheres. Optical access allows the use of flame luminosity and laser diagnostic techniques such as Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (PLIF).LIST OF FIGURES Figure 1.1 Shear layer development and potential core length in (a) simple jet, (b) cofiowing jet, and (c) coaxial jet 3 1.2 Schematic of a coaxial jet injector with the inner and outer mixing layers and the different mixinganbsp;...
