Development of Criteria for Flashback Propensity in Jet Flames for High Hydrogen Content and Natural Gas Type Fuels

Performer: University of California, Irvine

Project No: FE0011948

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will develop design guides to predict flame flashback propensity for high hydrogen content fuels. A better fundamental understanding of flashback tendencies will also provide insight into strategies for preventing flashback when designing hydrogen combustors that operated with fewer emissions at higher temperatures. Specifically, this project will conduct experimental studies of jet flame flashback using a test facility designed to investigate flashback at gas turbine relevant conditions and correlating the results to local flow and injector tip conditions.
