Abstract

The flow field of the turbulent counterflowing stream with and without nonpremixed flames, and the behavior of diffusion region of turbulent nonpremixed flames have been investigated experimentally. The turbulent characteristics of each side flow in a counterflowing stream would be regarded as keeping their initial turbulent characteristics from one burner exit to near the stagnation region. And the mutual interferences of turbulence of both flows are slight in the present nonreactive turbulent counterflow field. The trends of velocity fields at every turbulent condition agree well with the flow field of nonreactive turbulent counterflowing stream and it is considered that the mutual interferences of both air side stream turbulence and fuel side stream turbulence seem to be slight in a turbulent counterflowing stream with nonpremixed flames. The behavior of diffusion region including the nonpremixed flame is mostly affected by the turbulence of the air stream. And it indicate that the presence of a certain close relation between the macroscopic behavior of diffusion region caused by the turbulent effect and extinction phenomena of turbulent nonpremixed flames formed in a counterflowing stream.
