Abstract : Examination of both adiabatic and non-adiabatic flame theories shows that a 'steady state' exists only under the special condition that a heat sink exists at the initial temperature. For the general case of freely propagating, non-adiabatic flames only a quasi-steady state can be achieved. (Author)
