This year’s cover illustration, reproduced here as figure 1, depicts an image formed by a short-time (1/1000 s) exposure of a non-premixed hydrocarbon flame. The flow is driven by the buoyancy forces generated by the density difference from the combustion heat release and resulting temperature rise. The Reynolds number for this buoyancy-induced, turbulent flow is relatively low, estimated at a few thousand.
