Self-excitations of edge flame were studied in laminar lifted free- and coflow-jet as well as counterflow flames diluted with nitrogen and helium. The self-excitations, originated from variation of edge flame speed and found in the above-mentioned configurations, are discussed. A newly found self-excitation and flame blowout, caused by the conductive heat loss from premixed wings to trailing diffusion flame are described and characterized in laminar lifted jet flames. Some trials to distinguish Lewis-number-induced self-excitation from buoyancy-driven one with O(1.0 Hz) are introduced, and then the differences are discussed. In counterflow configuration, important role of the outermost edge flame in flame extinction is also suggested and discussed.
