We show that time-oscillating electric fields applied to plasmas present in flames create steady flows of gas. Ions generated within the flame move in the field and migrate a distance before recombining; the net flow of ions away from the flame creates a time-averaged force that drives the steady flows observed experimentally. A quantitative model describes the response of the flame and reveals how decreases as the frequency of the applied field increases. Interestingly, above a criticaldoi:10.1103/physreve.86.036314 pmid:23031020 fatcat:mipaaqaonneo7afqgia6oiedne
