The Normal Component of a Gas Flame Speed

Section: Plasmas and Gases
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: We study the burning of an open flame of hydrocarbon fuel in the air atmosphere and introduce a method of determination of the flame speed normal component for a selected local diametrical slice. A distribution of speeds along the flame axis reveals the inner flame structure and its variation depending on the fuel-oxidant ratio.

Key words:  burning, hydrocarbon flames, normal component of the flame speed, local slices, flame structure.
