A series of flow fields generated by a turbulent methane/air stratified swirl burner are investigated using laser Doppler anemometer (LDA). The LDA provides flow field measurements with comparatively high temporal resolutions. However, processing of the power spectral energy density (PSD) and autocorrelation functions (ACF) of the flow velocity by LDA is complicated by the random, intermittent nature of the LDA signal caused by random arrival of particles at the measuring volume. A tool is developed to overcome this difficulty and the preliminary results are presented in the present report.
