Strong spatial resonance near a cellular stability boundary is capable of generating families of orbitally stable spinning or travelling waves via an infinite-period secondary bifurcation from a steady bimodal solution branch. We illustrate this phenomenon for two problems in combustion theory corresponding to downward-propagating flames and the burning of liquid propellants in vertical channels.
