Abstract:

The Bray-Moss model for turbulent, premixed combustion is applied to plane, oblique combustion waves. The analysis takes into account the influence of turbulence and inhomogeneity on the effective rate of heat release, and also the competing effects of dilatation and turbulence production due to shear in the turbulence kinetic energy balance. Predictions are made of the flame speed and the structure of the reaction zone in cases where turbulent mixing is rate limiting. Qualitative agreement is found with relevant experimentat data.
