This paper presents an experimental study of the effect of fuel nozzle geometry on swirling partially premixed methane flames, where the focus is put on the ensuing flowfield and its role on coherent structures' suppression. The burner consists of a central interchangeable fuel nozzle surrounded by a swirling co-airflow where both discharge into a short mixing tube. The nozzle geometry is classified into two groups, namely, single- and multi-orifice nozzles. The swirling motion of the co-airflow is produced using a radial-type swirl generator with a swirl number of 1.15. The flowfield characteristics and coherent structures are documented using particle image velocimetry (PIV). Flame front dynamics are captured using Mie scattering technique. Quantitative laser sheet (QLS) is used to qualitatively shed light on the mixing characteristics downstream of the mixing tube exit, and laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) is used to extract the coherent structures' peak frequency from the power spectra. The results revealed that the fuel nozzle geometry significantly affects the mean flowfield, mean, and root-mean-square (RMS) of the flame front location, flame front asymmetry, and coherent structures' amplitude. Higher spread rate and faster decay caused by single-orifice nozzles inside the mixing tube result in divergent flames with higher degree of flame front asymmetry downstream of the mixing tube exit. On the other hand, multi-orifice nozzles mitigate coherent structures, enhance mixing, and hence, promote the most appropriate conditions for coherent structures' suppression.
