Development of Criteria for Flashback Propensity in Jet Flames for High Hydrogen Content and Natural Gas Type Fuels

Performer: University of California, Irvine

Project No: FE0011948

Project Description

The goal of this University of California, Irvine project is to develop design guides that can be used to predict jet flame flashback propensity as a function of pressure, temperature, fuel composition, free stream velocity, turbulence level, and fuel-air mixing profiles. This effort will lead to a better fundamental understanding of flashback tendencies and will also provide insight into strategies for preventing flashback.
