Abstract: Micro-scale combustion offers both theoretical and practical challenges in relation to micro power generation systems. In this thesis, theoretical, numerical and experimental studies were carried out to investigate the fundamental issues such as flame temperature, flame stabilization and heat transfer in micro-combustors. The developed 2D numerical model and 1D analytical model served as a theoretical basis. With regards to the cylindrical micro-combustors with backward-facing steps, the effects of combustor dimensions and flow conditions on the wall temperature distribution and radiation power were experimentally investigated. The experimental results were analyzed using both numerical modeling and dimensional analysis. A new configuration b
