lean blowout

lean blowout

A condition in gas turbine engine fuel combustion during which the fuel supply is decreased to maintain or reduce engine RPM. In the process, the burning may be so slow that the flame is carried out of the combustion chamber and extinguished.

Lean blowout can be defined as the phenomenon of flame extinction due to the reduction of the fuel-air ratio beyond a minimum threshold limit at which a given geometry can sustain a flame.
