Experimental and theoretical studies are carried out on the factors governing the blowoff velocities of stabilized flames supplied with flowing gaseous combustible mixtures. The test program encompasses wide variations in effective pressure, obtained using the water injection technique, and wide ranges of velocity, flameholder size, and flameholder blockage. An equation for predicting blowoff13; velocities is derived that shows good agreement with the experimental data. In the water-injection technique, low pressures are simulated by injecting water or steam into the fuel-air mixture flowing into the combustion zone. This approach makes it possible for complete stability loops to be drawn for large flameholders, up to 8 cm in
