5 Flamelet models for non-premixed combustion The basic assumption is that the chemical time-scales are short enough so that reactions occur in a thin layer around stoichiometric mixture on a scale smaller than the small scales of the turbulence. Physically, the flame structure is locally one-dimensional and depends only on time and on the coordinate normal to the flame front (or on z).This has two consequences: the structure of the reaction zone remains laminar, and diffusive transport occurs essentially in the direction normal to the surface of stoichiometric mixture. Then, the scalar transport equations can be transformed to a system where the mixture fraction is an independent coordinate.A subsequent asymptotic approximation leads to the flamelet equations.The species mass fractions are related to the mixture fraction Z by the solution of the steady flamelet equations, parameterized by the scalar dissipation rate.
