 Welcome to the Computational Fluid Dynamics Wiki, a project of CFD Online. Free to all, intended to produce the most comprehensive and useful CFD resource available, CFD-Wiki is created and maintained by volunteers from around the world. Please join us and contribute something today! You can also help by donating your reports and theses, or by doing much need editing. You don't need to be a CFD Guru to help us. There are lots of sections that still require cleanup including spelling, grammar, and punctuation. You can also check out the History of CFD section where no CFD expertise is required! Launched: November 20, 2005. We are currently working on 560 articles.

## Combustion

Combustion phenomena consist of many physical and chemical processes which exhibit a broad range of time and length scales. A mathematical description of combustion is not always trivial, although some analytical solutions exist for simple situations of laminar flame. Such analytical models are usually restricted to ... more
