Non-premixed combustion was implemented in a micro lobed combustion system. Its influence on combustion was studied by using experiment and simulation. Results show that micro lobed burner produces streamwise vortices and their intensity increases with equivalence ratio. Because of streamwise vortices and increment of contact area between methane and oxygen, methane mixes with oxygen well in the micro lobed burner, and it has bigger OH mass fraction and higher temperature than micro splitter burner. Near lobe exit, equivalence ratio of methane to oxygen (F) greatly affects the combustion enhancement of micro lobed burner. When F increases from 0.6 to 1.4, difference of highest temperature between micro lobed burner and micro splitter burner falls from 171K to 44K. In the phase when combustion is controlled by diffusion of shear layer, F affects combustion enhancement of micro lobed burner little. Dfference of highest combustion temperature changes little with F.
