Today, many researchers study on increasing combustion efficiency and reducing detrimenatl gas emission

value because environmental problems increasing day by day. Alternative fuel more attractive than fossil

fuels for researchers since properties of alternative fuels are abundant energy sources, clean and low cost.

In this study, propane gas has been used as an alternative fuel. Experiment has been performed constant

equivalance ratio (1.2), swirl number (1) and 7 kW thermal power under acoustic enforcement. In order to

carry out different dynamic pressure enforcement level has been changed from 115 Hz to 330 Hz by using

two loadspeakers. Firstly, blowout and flashback values of propane have been determined. Propane has

been burned with air and it has been investigated in terms of instablity flames under acoustic enforcement.
