Résumé : The High Enthalpy Source (HES) is a novel high temperature source developed to measure infrared line-by-line integrated absorption cross sections of flowing gases up to 2000 K. The HES relies on a porous graphite furnace designed to uniformly heat a constant flow of gas. The flow compensates thermal dissociation by renewing continuously the gas sample and eliminating dissociation products. The flowing characteristics have been investigated using computational fluid dynamics simulation confirming good temperature uniformity. The HES has been coupled to a high-resolution Fourier transform spectrometer to record emission spectra of methane at temperatures ranging between 700 and 1400 K. A radiative model has been developed to extract absolute line intensities from the recorded spectra.
