Abstract

Responses of the premixed methane/air mixture flames under equivalence ratio oscillations were numerically investigated assuming axi-symmetric stagnation flow fields. The flame motion was numerically investigated at three different oscillation frequencies (10, 20 and 50 Hz) and with three oscillation cases namely: lean case, rich case and lean rich crossover case. Methane/air mixture with equivalence ratio oscillation was issued from the burner exit with 1.0 m/s uniform velocity profile. The effects of frequency and amplitude of the equivalence ratio oscillation were discussed. The amplitude of the equivalence ratio oscillation is attenuated between the burner exit and the upstream edge of the preheat zone. The attenuation is much significant for higher frequency. The amplitude of the flame temperature oscillation attenuates following the attenuation of the equivalence ratio oscillation. The flame location makes the closed cycle around the flame location of correspond equivalence ratio in the steady state condition. The formation of the cycle can be explained by the back support effect. It was further demonstrated that, the back support effect influences the dynamic response of the flame location, in that, the direction of the cycles of the dynamic response in the lean case and the rich case are different. Furthermore, the time variation of the flame location plays a significant effect to the flame displacement speed.
