Full text not available from this repository.


An overview of the physics of the interaction between sound and flames is presented. The flame dynamics are investigated through experiment and computer modelling. The complementary rôles of wave analysis, low-order models for unsteady combustion, Computational Fluid Dynamics and experiment are illustrated by examples of oscillations in gas turbine combustors and in generic premixed ducted flames. The potential for 'antisound' and passive acoustic absorbers to eliminate the instability is also discussed.
