Modelling Of Laminar Diffusion Flames In Vitiated Environments

Tuovinen, H., 1994. Modelling Of Laminar Diffusion Flames In Vitiated Environments. Fire Safety Science 4: 113-124. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.4-113


A laminar flamelet model has been used to calculate chemistry of methane-air flamelets in vitiated and non-vitiated environments. Calculated results for temperature and stable species concentrations agree well with those obtained using other similar models. The present results also agree quite well with recent laboratory measurements on both laminar and turbulent diffusion flames. The largest discrepancies between measured and calculated results are for CO-concentrations.
