Abstract : An investigation of the ozone-oxygen flame is presented. This will be another link in the study of how flame properties - thickness, speed, heat release, specific enthalpy, mol-fraction and fractional mass-flow profiles - are affected by the kinetic scheme and will offer another test of the importance of assumptions introduced in more approximate flame theories. This system is particularly advantageous for two reasons: (1) it has possibly the simplest kinetics of any real flame; and (2) it has been studied experimentally over a wider range of the relative importance of the different elementary reactions by the simple expedient of varying the input (03/02) ratio.
