Instabilities in non-premixed combustion

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The objective of this work is to examine the occurrence and onset of diffusive-thermal instabilities in non-premixed systems. We review the experimental evidence of cellular flames in diffusion flames and present theoretical predictions based on a linear stability analysis. The results show the importance of the Damköhler number, the two Lewis numbers associated with the fuel and the oxidant and the equivalence ratio of the system.
