Abstract:

Response curves of vaporization rate versus Damkohler number are examined in the limit of large activation energy, so as to determine their weak-and strong-decomposition branches. A recipe is given for locating the ignition point at the end of the former, when there is one and an explicit formula is derived for the extinction or ignitionextinction point at the end of the latter, when there is one.
