At this point, one could think of two different explanations for the observation that a premixed flame which is confined inside a duct has many times the wall flashback propensity of a flame burning in free atmosphere: (1) The presence of the flame inside the duct may change the macroscopic axial velocity field, up to regions considerably upstream of the flame, which would distort the formerly quasi two-dimensional, canonical turbulent boundary layer of the isothermal flow in such a way that the near-wall region becomes retarded and velocity gradients decrease.
