Turbulent flame-oscillation frequency and combustion efficiency are the important parameters in combustion. It is a useful study to judge combustion efficiency by intuitive flame frequency. Based on a combustion wind tunnel experimental setup, the variation law of combustion 9 flame-oscillation frequency and combustion efficiency using external wind speeds was studied via the color flames image sequence of oil pan combustion and flue gas composition. The oscillation frequency was calculated with the upper edge of the fire plume which recorded flame image sequence using a high-speed video, combined the MATLimage processing technique. The combustion efficiency was calculated combined with the C and H element mass of the liquid fuel in the oil pool and CO2 and H2O concentrations in the flue gas. The results show that the oscillation frequency of the flame revealed a tendency to increase followed by a decrease with increasing wind speed, while the overall trend of combustion efficiency increased first and then decreased. The combustion efficiency could be judged by observing the oscillation frequency of the flame image. In addition, the combustion efficiency may ensure in right way when the turbulence oscillation frequency of the oil pan flame ranged between 15 HZ and 18 HZ
