Abstract:

This report is Chapter XII of the twelve in a forthcoming research monograph on the mathematical theory of laminar combustion. The induction, explosion, transition, propagation and relaxation phases are described for a slab of reactant whose faces are kept at a constant temperature. Under ignition, the application of a heat flux to a half space is considered. Finally, the explosion of initially separated reactants after they have mixed is shown to be very similar to the explosion of premixed reactants. Author
