ASYMPTOTIC ANALYSIS OF FLAME STRUCTURE PREDICTING CONTAMINANT PRODUCTION

Interest in production of contaminants in ames ranges from concern about pol-

know

ity problems. Engine signatures depend strongly on trace contaminants. It is

often easier to predict principal ame characteristics than to predict contaminant

levels because the contaminants depend on ne details of the chemical kinetics

of combustion. The work reported here is directed towards obtaining improved

useful methods for calculating concentrations of these species in combustion pro-

cesses.
