Abstract : Several tasks of research on turbulent flames have been pursued. The focus has been on low to moderate Reynolds number, premixed flames which are dominated by flamelet structures, i.e., the major heat releasing chemical reactions occur in thin sheets. Large density changes occur across flamelets and therefor it is expected that these structures have an important influence on turbulence generation. The focus of the research has thus been on flamelet characteristics.
