A physical model for simulating combustion systems in laminar flow reactors has been developed. The one-dimensional model is derived from the conservation equations and thermodynamic relations, and includes transport phenomena. It is an extension of zero-dimensional models proposed by others, and enables the chemical time to be interpreted accurately. A numerical program has been developed for solving the governing equations, and has been coupled both with CHEMKIN, an advanced package designed to facilitate simulations of elementary chemical reactions, and with TRANSPORT PACKAGE, a package capable of evaluating the transport property coefficients. The numerical code has been used to simulate ethane combustion. Good agreement with experimental results was obtained.
