|Quoting Lehpron (Thread starter):|
What are flame holders, what do they look like and how do they work? Do they store heat, so to speak.
|Quoting MD11Engineer (Reply 1):|
Flameholders create localised turbulence in the combustor (or the tail pipe of an engine with reheat / afterburner), which locally slows down the airflow and prevents the flame from getting blown away from the vicinity of the injector nozzles.

I found this nice shot of the rear end of an F-16 engine in the db. Is this ring with the "fingers" and corrugated inner and outer radius the flameholder?
