This contribution gives a short overview over modern numerical combustion modelling. Numerical simulation of combustion is a multi-scale problem, because the specific issues of fluid mechanics and chemical reaction systems accumulate. There exist a large variety of combustion models for different flame types, which are more or less universal. For some turbulent reacting flows, existing methodologies are acceptably accurate, and have justifiable computational cost. Depending on the expected answers of numerical simulation, substantial advances are required and have to be worked out.
