Abstract:

The stability of a laminar flame in the presence of a magnetic field is examined. Two important cases are considered In the first case, the imposed magnetic field is assumed to be parallel to the flame in the second, it is assumed to be normal to the flame. It is shown that a flame cannot be stabilized by the imposition of such magnetic f elds and that the parallel magnetic field of sufficient strength can have a stabilizing effect on some harmonic components only.
