Hello,

I am using reactingFoam for simulation of premixed laminar flames. I noticed that the maximum flame temperature continues to increase much beyond adiabatic flame temperature.

Does anyone have idea why this is happening?

Hi,

could you tell us a bit more of your case setting?

Christof,

I just noticed that this problem of flame temperature (FT) peeking to 4000 K & above is something not specific only to the case with new reaction mechanism. I ran the reactingFoam tutorial case for heptane, and without exception FT is again increasing uncontrollably.

Pasted below is the output for a few i.steps:
