In the present work, the chemical composition of syngas is changed by varying the H2/CO ratio, to map the change in the acoustic behavior of a bluff-body combustor. It was observed that with increase in hydrogen concentration in the syngas mixture, the frequency shifts to higher modes and the flame structures changes. The flame oscillations are mapped by means of simultaneous high-speed OH* and CO2* chemiluminescence imaging along with dynamic pressure measurement. The plots of spatial distribution of OH* and CO2* intensity are used to understand change in flame structure with change in chemical composition and also to help in understanding the kinetics affecting acoustic behavior of the flame. The change in flow structures with change in chemical composition of fuel is studied by simultaneous high-speed PIV, OH* chemiluminescence and dynamic pressure measurements.
