Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Recent theoretical advances in premixed gas combustion are reviewed. The attention is focused on (1) self-acceleration of outward propagating wrinkled flames sustained by the intrinsic flame instability, (2) fragmentation of near-limit cellular flames and formation of self-drifting flame balls, (3) flame acceleration and extinction by large-scale turbulence, (4) multiplicity of detonation regimes in hydraulically resisted flows and the phenomenon of shock-free pressure-driven combustion, and (5) hydraulic resistance as a mechanism of deflagration-to-detonation transition.
