Abstract: An experimental study was conducted to investigate the influence of hydrogen addition on the heat transfer characteristics of a biogas (60%CH 4-40%CO2) flame. Results show improved flame stability and higher flame temperature in the premixed flame upon hydrogen addition. Both temperature and burning speed are increased in 1.0 ≤ Φ ≤ 1.5. Comparison of the premixed and diffusion flames reveals that the former yields higher heat transfer than the latter, due to higher flame temperature and larger volume of hot gas in the premixed flame. The total heat transfer rates of the two flames show opposite trends with increasing level of hydrogen addition, which is explained by the different structures. In the premixed flame, the contact of large cool core with target plate configures the high-temperature flame zone to a radial location with larger distance from the stagnation point than that of the diffusion flame, contributing to its higher heat transfer rate.
