Abstract: a b s t r a c tThis research focuses on the effects of an increasing pressure on the soot formation during combustion of vaporized liquid fuel. Therefore soot formation is measured in a laminar diffusion flame, with n-heptane as fuel, over a range of pressures from 1.0 to 3.0 bar. The soot volume fraction in the diffusion flames has been measured using Laser-Induced Incandescence (LII) calibrated by means of the Line Of Sight Attenuation (LOSA) technique. The values of the calibration factors between LII inte…
