The growth of transverse velocity disturbances in the shear region caused by a flame in a duct is examined theoretically and experimentally. The theoretical analysis consist of a stability analysis of a flow field arising from a flame in a duct. the flow is found to be neutrally stable to symmetric disturbances and unstable to antisymmetric ones.
