Supplementary Material

Flame animation sequences

Animation sequences of the flame temperature contours, as obtained from the simulations, both for the disk operated at a Reynolds of 5800 at a swirl level of 1.0 and for the square operated at a Reynolds of 5800 are provided here. These animations were taken, in each case, after a sudden reduction of the fuel inlet boundary condition, to the LBO levels and provide detailed and continuous illustrations of the transient flow and flame topology events that occur as the final stages of the lean blow-out process are approached for the two burner configurations.
