Abstract

Combustion-driven acoustic oscillations are investigated by performing a one-dimensional stability analysis of a burner-stabilized premixed flame. In contrast to other investigators, no initial acoustic wave is assumed in the analysis; the downstream acoustic field results from flame instability. Two models are considered: the thermodiffusive model (uncoupled model) and the fully coupled thermodiffusive-hydrodynamic model. The fully coupled problem exhibits instability at a much lower critical Lewis number than the uncoupled problem.
