Concentration fluctuations were investigated using a water tunnel with a separate salt-water solution as a ‘fuel’ tracer flow. A fine electrode was used to detect the concentration of the tracer from the local conductivity. The frequency response of 0.4 by 1 mm probe tip was 10 kHz. An impinging axial/radial jet configuration was studied as this is a key element in some burner and gas turbine low emission combustor designs. Mixing was complete to within 5% by six axial hole diameters, an order of magnitude improvement on single jet mixing. The mixing traverses close to the jets demonstrated the importance of the method of fuel injection on the mixing process. The turbulent scalar mixing results are a suitable data set for CFD code validation of isothermal jet mixing.
