Abstract

The extinction of laminar premixed flames by stretch and radiative loss is studied for the model problem of counterflow opposed-jet combustion by using the matched asymptotic expansion technique for the highly temperature sensitive processes of radiative heat loss and large-activation-energy reaction kinetics. Explicit expressions for the critical Damköhler number at extinction are derived and the influence of upstream vs downstream heat losses assessed. Results show that stretch exerts a much stronger influence than radiative loss on flame extinction. © 1984.
