Effect of thickness of diffusion-temperature layer on flame height

  • 27 Accesses


  1. 1.

    Periodic variation of the thickness of the diffusion-temperature layer causes periodic oscillations of the flame height.

  2. 2.

    The mechanism of sinusoidal or near-sinusoidal oscillation of the flame height can be explained, at least qualitatively, purely in terms of molecular radial diffusion of oxygen.
