Abstract: With the aim of exploring explosion characteristics of methane-air explosive mixtures in a ducted vessel, a 20 litre spherical vessel connected with a 2813 mm long duct was employed. The experimental setup was comprised of a wafer check valve, which kept the methane-air mixture initially confined and opened at the time of explosion. The system introduced turbulence to the gas mixture during operation and pyrotechnic igniters were employed in the investigation. This approach assisted to obtain data that can be …
