Abstract:

The general results of the approach which regards a flame as a partially ionized gas which is stable in a space region where this plasma is confined are described. The boundary of this region defines the flame profile. A system of linear differential equations has been deduced, and its solutions which satisfy the prescribed stability conditions have been determined and analyzed. The approach, characterized by a marked handiness of the mathematical algorithm, seems promising for studying the propagation of electromagnetic waves in flame gases and for testing the time-dependency in combustion processes.
