Information about the limits of flame propagation within streams of homogeneous gaseous fuel-air mixtures at atmospheric pressure is presented for both low velocity streams, in the presence of pilot jet flame ignition, as well as for high velocity streams when ignited by an electric spark of adequate and constant energy. In addition to methane, representing natural gas, other gaseous fuels were considered that included hydrogen and propane. The roles of the presence of varying concentration of the diluent gases, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, with the methane and changes in the intensity of turbulence were also investigated.
