Spherical diffusion flames: Structure and dynamics

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Some current theoretical work on spherical diffusion flames are described. Particularly, burner-generated diffusion flames, radiation effects in non-premixed combustion and the onset of oscillations in such flames are discussed. Variation in flame temperature as a function of the mass flow rate and the burner's conductance is illustrated graphically. Plots showing flame temperature variation against mass flow rate and the radiative heat loss parameter, flammability limits, the burning rate as a function of the ambient oxidant combustion, the onset of oscillations and stability in the heat loss are also presented.
