Modeling: Scale analysis, computational model, radiation model
Scale analysis leading to de Ris formula for flame spread over thin and thick fuels in the thermal regime, formulas for flame spread in the radiative regime, and more.
Mathematical model (2-d, steady equations for continuity, species, and energy equations in a canonical form with overall one-step second-order combustion kinetics in the gas phase and a single-step zero-order pyrolysis kinetics. Properties and thermodynamics of PMMA and cellulose combustion.
Systematic validation of the radiation model, the global balance method to obtain the Planck mean absorption coefficient.
