Comments on the Interaction of Turbulence And Chemical Kinetics

Abstract

Chen and Kollmann [1] provide a valuable review of the interaction of the fluid mechanical and chemical processes involved in turbulent reacting flows. We are thus presented with the task of commenting on a contribution with which we have no argument! Given this situation we can only reinforce and amplify the points they make and provide additional comments on this important interaction.
