Flame Propagation in a Horizontal Channel

Z. Rakib, G. Sivashinsky

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using the weak thermal expansion approximation, we derive an equation describing the dynamics of flame propagation in a horizontal channel. The velocity and form of the equilibrium flame front are calculated. A decription is given of the effect of suppression of cellular structure in the flame when the buoyancy effect is sufficiently strong.
