Abstract:

The problem of formulating the governing equations of combusion consists, as its simplest, in characterizing the flow of a viscous, heat-conducting mixture of diffusing, reacting gases. This is a formidable task that could fill a week of lectures by itself, most of which would not be of great interest to a mathematical audience. Mindful of this, we shall limit ourselves to a description, rather than a derivation, of the simplest equations that can be brought to bear on combustion problems. Only the most important assumptions normally used to justify the equations will be discussed for a more extensive treatment the reader is referred to Buckmaster Ludford 1982.
