Abstract

An analysis was conducted for the flame-sheet combustion of an oxidizing Blasius boundary layer flow over a parallel gasifying fuel surface, allowing deviation of the flow Prandtl and Schmidt numbers from unity. Explicit expressions were obtained for the flame location, flame temperature, and fuel gasification rate for given properties of the oxidizing flow and the fuel. An asymptotic solution was also derived for the Blasius equation with surface blowing, with good accuracy when compared to the numerical solution.
