Fire propagation is driven by the coupling of heat and
mass transfer processes between the gaseous and the
condensed phases. A significant portion of the heat
transfer rate is provided by radiative heat transfer
mechanisms of which soot radiation contributes
significantly for many flames. Although time history
effects are suspected to affect the dynamics of soot
evolution within heavily sooting non-premixed flames,
the majority of soot chemistry calculations have been
conducted for steady flame configurations.
