Abstract

The structure of the weakly-reactive states leading to ignition in the laminar mixing layer flow is studied both analytically and numerically. It is shown that the flow consists of a reactive region and a self-similar frozen region separated by a transitional, non-similar frozen region; that the reactive region is intrinsically non-similar because of its excessively slow diffusion rate; and that the ignition characteristics are primarily governed by the velocity of the hot stream and therefore minimally dependent on the velocity distribution. 8 refs.
