The flame patterns were investigated in an oscillating combustion burner equipped with a specially designed proportioning valve. The proportioning valve is driven by a solenoid and has an elastomer part which controls the valve opening area. For characterizing the valve, nozzle exit velocities were measured with a hot wire anemometry. The flame patterns were investigated by direct photographing methods using a high speed camera and a digital camera. The results show that the nozzle exit velocities could be controlled diversely and rapidly changed, so the valve seemed appropriate for the oscillating combustion burner application. Mushroom shape and highly wrinkled structure were typical features of the flames in the oscillating combustion burner. As the oscillating intensity of the fuel flow increased, the flame length was shortened.
