Abstract

The response of a premixed flame in stagnation-point flow with an imposed oscillating strain rate has been examined. This configuration is of fundamental interest and has potential application to turbulent combustion modelling. Of interest are flames which stand well clear of the front stagnation point of a bluff body. Under these conditions the flame can be treated as a surface of density discontinuity. A detailed solution is constructed in the burned and unburned gas regions and includes the flame response to the imposed fluctuations as well as the resulting displacement of the incident flow. Our analysis accounts for the full coupling between the flame and the underlying flow field and, unlike most previous studies, is not restricted to small-amplitude oscillations.
