Flame in methane jet after spark ignition

Ahmed, Samer F. ; Mastorakos, Epaminondas (2009-05-21)


The video shows the flame motion following spark ignition in a turbulent methane jet. The flow conditions were: 30% air, 70% CH4, jet velocity 12.5m/s & 25m/s, framing rate 4200 fps, spark at r=0, z=40d (40 jet diameters; d=5mm). For details, see: S.F. Ahmed, E.
