Flame propagation in a lifted flame subjected to a transient velocity pulse is investigated using high-speed OH-LIF and Large Eddy Simulation (LES). The design of the burner, taking the requirements of the simulations into consideration, comprises an attached and lifted CNG jet flame in a mild air co-flow, forced to transition by a controlled mass flow pulse of fuel. The high-speed images taken at 5 kHz show a rapid lifting of the flames upon pulsation before the flame base propagates back towards the nozzle. The resulting steady state position differed from the initial lift-off position, consistent with the previously observed hysteresis concept. Calculations using LES along with detailed chemistry are shown to capture the basic features observed in the experiment.
