Grahic Jump Location
Temperature distribution of diffusive burning along the stoichiometric line. Two coflowing streams of combustion products (c=1) enter the domain from the left in fuel-rich and fuel-lean conditions, while the adiabatic formulation of the extended TFC model correctly predicts additional heat release along the stoichiometric line (a) no such behavior is captured by the nonadiabatic formulation (b).
