Instabilities and soot formation in high pressure explosion flames

Lockett, R. D. (2009). Instabilities and soot formation in high pressure explosion flames. Paper presented at the The British-French Flame Days, 02 - 03 April 2009, Lille, France.

Abstract

Flame instabilities, cellular structures and soot formed in high pressure, rich, spherically expanding iso-octane-air flames have been studied experimentally using high speed Schlieren cinematography, OH fluorescence, and laser induced incandescence. Cellular structures with two wavelength ranges developed on the flame surface. In rich flames with equivalence ratio ?> 1.8, soot was formed in a honeycomb-like structure behind flame cracks associated with the large wavelength cellular structure.
