An experimental study on spherically expanding flames propagation of methane-air mixtures was conducted at constant pressure to measure unstretched laminar flame speeds, laminar burning velocity and flame stretch. The mixtures were ignited at equivalence ratios of 0.7, 0.9 and 1.0, under ambient pressure and temperature. It was found that the unstretched laminar burning velocity increased with the equivalence ratio. The flame propagation speed showed different trends at different equivalence ratio for tested mixtures.
