The aim of this study is to calculate the laminar burning velocity of a premixed methaneair flame using two different experimental methods -- the slot burner, and the Bunsen burner technique. In both experiments flame angle and flame area are estimated by using a digital camera. The gas flow rates are measured using a flow meter. Results are compared with preexisting burning velocity data from the literature and good agreement is observed. In addition, the factors that influence the measurement of laminar burning velocity, including equivalence ratio, geometry of the burner, and influence of flame stretch are also analyzed.
