Cascade Model for Turbulent Flame Propagation

  • G. I. Sivashinsky
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 48)


Turbulent flame propagation is modeled as a passive front moving through a multiple-scale flow field, in which large-scale eddies convect small-scale eddies without causing their distortion. For moderately high levels of turbulence the effective flame speed predicted by the theory correlates reasonably well with the experimental data available.
