Abstract

The cross-sectional flame images were measured during the late stage of flame propagation in closed combustion chamber. The initial flame had larger wrinkles and the late flame had smaller structure as the flame propagated in the chamber. The fractal analysis of the flame boundaries was performed. The fractal dimension increased and inner cutoff scale decreased with the increase of mixture density. It was found that the fractal dimension is expressed as a function of the turbulence intensity, laminar burning velocity and mixture density during the flame propagation.
