Measurements of laminar flame velocities and the experimental determination of concentration- and temperature profiles in laminar flame fronts were introduced in Chapter 2. A challenge to the combustion scientist is to construct a model that will match the observed concentration- and temperature profiles and allows prediction of events for which there are no measurements. Chapter 3 introduced a simple model, consisting of a system of partial differential equations derived from the conservation of mass, enthalpy, and species mass. In these equations, the terms dealing with thermodynamics were the subject of Chapter 4. The terms dealing with transport properties were the subject of Chapter 5. In the equation system, the source or sink of species and energy are the chemical reactions discussed in Chapters 6 and 7. The model now is complete; one only needs to solve the system of partial differential equations with appropriate boundary conditions.
