On the Validity of Anomalous Population Temperatures in Flames

Penner, S. S.


It should be obvious to anyone reading our recent papers objectively that our "principle thesis" was (a) to examine the origin of the basic relations involved in the customary procedure for the determination of population temperatures in flames, with emphasis on the effect of spectral line shape on the final equations, and (b) to present experimental data on low pressure combustion flames which support the earlier experimental findings of Gaydon and Wolfhard.
