In the previous chapter, premixed flames were discussed. In these flames, the fuel and oxidizer are mixed first with combustion occurring well after mixing. Nonpremixed flames were introduced as a basic flame type in Chapter 1. In nonpremixed flames, fuel and oxidizer react as they mix; examples of nonpremixed flames are given in Table 1.2. In this chapter, the standard model of laminar nonpremixed flames is developed. The extension of this model to a quantitative description of turbulent nonpremixed flames is the subject of Chapter 14.
