Effect of Initial Pressure upon Laminar Burning Velocity of Propane -Air Mixture

Abstract

The effect of the initial pressure upon the laminar flame speed, for aPropane-air mixture, has been detected practically, for a wide range ofequivalence ratio. Measurement system is designed in order to measure the laminar flame speed using a constant volume method with thermocouples technique. The laminar burning velocity is measured, by using the density ratio method. The comparison of the present work results with a previous ones show good agreement between them, which indicates that the measurements and the calculations employed in the present work are successful and precise.
