Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe mechanism of finger flame acceleration at the early stage of burning in tubes was studied experimentally by Clanet and Searby [Combust. Flame 105 (1996) 225] for slow propane-air flames, and elucidated analytically and computationally by Bychkov et al. [Combust. Flame 150 (2007) 263] in the limit of incompressible flow. We have now analytically, experimentally and computationally studied the finger flame acceleration for fast burning flames, when the gas compressibility assumes an importa…
