When a laminar flame front becomes cellular, the flame front area increases and the rate at which the unburnt gases are consumed is increased. If this is not taken into account when modelling vented or non-vented explosions, the pressures that vessels containing explosions are subject to can be greatly under-predicted. For most explosion models, hydrodynamic instabilities are considered as the only driving force for the formation of cellular flames. This paper shows that the transition to… CONTINUE READING
