Abstract: This work focuses upon the effects of DC electric fields on the stability of downward propagating atmospheric pressure premixed propane-air flames under experimental conditions that provide close coupling of the electric field to the flame. With the appropriate electrode geometry, modest applied voltages are shown to drive a stable conical flame first into a wrinkled-laminar flamelet geometry, and then further toward either a highly unstable distributed flamelet regime or a collective oscillation of the flame…
