The main object of this work is to investigate combustion in a two-layer packed beds porous burner, in particular, to study the effect of methane and propane on flame stability, pressure drop and pollutant emissions. The equivalence ratio of both methane and propane varied from 0.55 to 0.70. The results indicated that flame stability limits of both methane and propane enlarged with the increasing of equivalence ratio, however, the stability limits of methane is more widely than propane. The macroscopic flame shapes of methane and propane remains approximately the same but the later has a larger flame thickness. The NOx emissions are seen to be increased and the CO decreased with the equivalence ratio, HC emissions firstly decreased and then increased with the equivalence ratio for both methane and propane.
