Counter Flow Diffusion Flames provide a convenient way to study strained laminar flames. It was found both experimentally [1] and in numerical simulations [2,3] that, under suitable conditions, a toroidally shaped edge flame (left) can exist as an alternative to the well known planar diffusion flame (right). This edge flame can not be found when using the 1-D codes commonly employed for the simulation of opposed flow diffusion flames.
