Mathematical Description of Laminar Flat Premixed Flames

If a chemically reacting flow is considered, the system at each point in space and time is completely described by specification of pressure, density, temperature, velocity of the flow, and concentration of each species. These properties can be changing in time and space. These changes are the result of fluid flow (called convection), chemical reaction, molecular transport (e. g., heat conduction, diffusion, and viscosity), and radiation. A mathematical description of flames therefore has to account for each of these processes (Hirschfelder et al. 1964).
