The Combustion Institute This paper studies the contribution of flame annihilation events to the sound radiated by turbulent, premixed flames. Previously published direct numerical simulation (DNS) datasets of stoichiometric and lean (ϕ=0.7) flames (Haghiri et al. 2018) are first examined using an efficient formulation of the method of Griffiths et al. (2015) to identify the annihilation events. Four classes of annihilation event are observed. Three of these - pocket burn-out, tunnel closure and tunnel formation - were defined by Griffiths et al. A ‘multi-feature’ event is also defined in this paper as any combination of the other three annihilation events occurring close enough such that th..
