Abstract

The vortex ring/diffusion flame interaction is one of the problems that have eluded study of the influence of buoyancy under normal-gravity conditions. Despite of the simple configuration of the vortex ring/diffusion flame interaction, its study can only be brought within microgravity conditions due to the loss of axisymmetry in the resulting interaction under normal gravity. The first experimental examination of this important problem is presented where hydrocarbon combustion is examined in a vortex ring burning in air.
