Abstract

The effects of stretch in delaying the onset of hydrodynamic and diffusional-thermal cellular instabilities were studied and experimentally quantified using outwardly propagating spherical flames of hydrogen, propane, acetylene, and ethylene at elevated pressures. A general expression for the parametric boundary defining the transition to instability was identified.
