An introduction to far-reaching developments in theoretical combustion, with special emphasis on flame stability, a topic that has, to date, benefited most from the application of modern asymptotic methods. The authors provide a modern view of flame theory, and a complete description of the longstanding ignition and explosion problems, including the solutions that were made available independently by Kapila and Kassoy through activation-energy asymptotics, the main theme of this monograph.
Pre-Asymptotic Combustion Revisited; Governing Equations, Asymptotics, and Deflagrations; General Deflagrations; SVFs and NEFs; Stability of the Plane Deflagration Wave; Cellular Flames; Pulsating Flames; Counterflow Diffusion Flames; Spherical Diffusion Flames; Free-Boundary Problems.
