On the stability of the reaction zone of the plane deflagration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The one-dimensional stability of the reaction-zone of a premixed plane flame is examined. The flame is described busing activation-energy asymptotics and it is shown that the stability of the reaction-zone depends on the Lewis number of the fuel. For the simple kinetic model considered, the critical Lewis number is one.
