Abstract

Owing to the importance of the spot propagation characteristics in transition zone modeling, the effect of lateral streamline convergence alone on the spot propagation characteristics has been studied. It is found that for the extent of lateral straining introduced here, the two-dimensional spot propagation characteristics are unaffected.
