Flame behaviors in meso-scale rectangular channels are largely influenced by heat recirculation through wall. In order to investigate the effects of wall thermal property on the heat recirculation and flame behaviors, meso-scale rectangular channels, of which upper and lower walls are made of quartz, stainless steel and silicon carbide and front and rear walls of quartz for flame visualization, were fabricated in this study. As a result, characteristic mixture velocities of propane-air flame, such as transition, stationary, and instability onset velocities, were measured for each channel and various mixture conditions. The results show that thermal conductivity has a close relationship to the characteristic velocities.
