This paper is concerned with a study of the behavior of opposed-jet diffusion flames subjected to electrostatic fields. A theory for an idealized diffusion flame is presented which predicts an increase in the maximum volumetric heat-release rate when a flame is subjected to an electric field. Experiments reveal that the maximum mass flow into the flame increases with the application of an electric field.
