Frequency characteristics of a laminar flame

  • 38 Accesses


A theoretical study is made of the effect of harmonic pressure oscillations on a flat laminar flame. Frequency characteristics of the flames are obtained at amplitudes of the pressure oscillations which are small compared with the average pressure. It is established that in a broad range of frequencies the disturbances in the integral rate of heat release occur in phase with the pressure oscillations and depend weakly on the frequency.
