TURBULENT COMBUSTION REGIME CHARACTERISTIC OF A TAYLOR COUETTE BURNER
A variety of combustion congurations have been employed by previous in-
vestigators in studies of turbulent burning velocities of premixed ames. These
include (1) rod-stabilized v-ames; (2) tube-stabilized conical ames;
(3) stagnation-ow stabilized ames ; (4) weak-swirl stabilized ames ; and
(5) fan-stirred chambers . All of these congurations suer to varying degrees
from turbulence that is inhomogeneous, unsteady, or subject to signicant mean
ow velocity or mean strain.
