The present paper reviews some of the findings of an experimental investigation of flame initiation and spread characteristics in the controlled environment of a flowing homogeneous stream of fuel and air within a smooth cylindrical tubular reactor with a large length-to-diameter ratio; both steady and controlled pulsating flow conditions were considered with methane as a fuel. The role of some of the important factors influencing the combustion process, such as the flow characteristics and the imposition of pulsation of known frequency and amplitude, could be established. Particular attention was given to the extent of variations observed in these processes when tests were repeated under otherwise identical conditions.
