  • What is Flame ?
  • Flame is a self sustained combustion (deflagration) wave with a thin zone where rapid exothermic reaction takes place.
  • What is deflagration wave?
  • It is a combustion wave travelling at subsonic speed into unburnt fuel-air mixture.
  • SL – Flame speed , M – Mach Number = V/a , M < 1 (Subsonic), M1 – Mach Number ahead of the flame front, M1 – Mach Number behind of the flame front .
