Experimental investigation of the nonlinear response of turbulent premixed flames to imposed inlet velocity oscillations
This paper describes an experimental investigation of acoustically forced lean premixed turbulent bluff-body-stabilised flames in an enclosure short enough so that no coupling of the combustorExpand

Measurements in turbulent premixed bluff body flames close to blow-off
Abstract The structure of unconfined lean premixed methane–air flames stabilized on an axisymmetric bluff body has been examined for conditions increasingly closer to blow-off and during the blow-offExpand
