The main feature of the flame kinematics can be described with the G-equation. We investigate the solutions of the G-equation with the well-known self-similar Ansatz. The results are discussed and the method how to get selfsimilar solutions is briefly mentioned.

Flame kinematics; Combustion engineering; Fluid dynamics

To understand the dynamics of flame fronts is a general interest for combustion engineering. One way to gain such Knowledge is the investigation of the G-equation model. Since the G-equation was introduced by Markstein in 1964 [1] numerous analytical [2] and numerical approaches [3-5] have been used to find the solutions. The study of [2] uses the method of characteristics for nonlinear first order partial-differential equations (PDA).

Dekena [5] uses a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code Fire to investigate turbulent flame propagation in Gasoline Direct Injection engines. Further references for application of the G-equation are given therein.

In the G-equation model the flame itself is treated as a surface (flame front) that separates the burnt from the unburnt gas. A detailed derivation of the model can be found in ref. [2]. The flame front is described here by the relation of:

*G*(*r*,*z*,*t*)=*z*−ζ(*r*,*t*)=0 (1)

The most general form of the G-equation is the following:

(2)

Where *u*(*r*, *z*, *t*) and *v*(*r*, *z*, *t*) are the radial and the axial components of the gas velocity, and *S _{L}* is the constant modulus of the laminar burning velocity, respectively.

In the following we use a well-known method, which is very popular to investigate nonlinear PDAs, namely searching for selfsimilar solutions. We are looking for solution of (2) in the form of:

(3)

The similarity exponents *α* and *β* are of primary physical importance since α represents the rate of decay of the magnitude *ζ*(*x*, *t*), while *β* is the rate of spread (or contraction if *β*<0) of the space distribution as time goes on.

This kind of solutions has a broad range of applicability, e.g. a large number of diffusion-reaction-type equations [6] or time-dependent telegraph-type heat-conduction equation [7] can be examined as well.

Substituting this into (2) we have:

(4)

Where prime denotes differentiation with respect to *η*.

After setting set *u*=*S _{l}*=1 and

(5)

The solutions can be easily obtained and read:

(6)

Where *c*_{1} is the real integration constant. The solutions can be seen in **Figure 1**. The corresponding self-similar solutions are:

(7)

Both solutions can be proven with direct derivation. The first solution is trivial however the non-trivial second one is presented on **Figure 2**.

We may consider more sophisticated flow systems where the radial and axial components of the gas velocity and the *S _{L}* are functions of time and radial position. First let’s consider that the velocities and the constant modulus of the laminar burning velocity are real numbers (

(8)

The solutions became a bit more complicated:

(9)

The function *f*(*η*)_{2} is presented in **Figure 3**. with the following fixed set of parameters (*u*=2, *v*=−1, *c*_{1}=1, *S _{L}*=3).

Note, that the solution has now a compact support with nonvanishing first derivatives at the border. This means that there is no fluxconservation at the boundaries. There are more analytical solutions for special *u*(*x*, *t*), *v*(*x*, *t*) and *S _{l}*(

Another generally interesting question is the dispersion relation and the attenuation distances. It can be examined how wave equations or other nonlinear evolutionary equations propagate plain waves in time and in space. Inserting the usual plain wave approximation *ζ*(*r*,*t*)=*e ^{i}*

(10)

(11)

Inserting the relation of ω=*kc* where *c* is the propagation velocity of the signal the formulas only depend on the wavenumber vector *k*. Considering *c*=1 propagation speed **Figure 4** shows the phase velocity as the function of the wavenumber. The (1− *signum*[−1+*k*^{2}]) in the formula is responsible for the compact support of the function. **Figure 5** shows the attenuation distance of the various waves. At *k*=1 the *α*(*k*) function is non-analytic.

In this short study we just wanted to present that self-similar solution can be easily used to generate analytic solutions for the G-equation. With more general and more physical relations for the radial and axial gas flow velocity hopefully more physical solutions can be obtained. Anyhow, any kind of analytical solution of a nonlinear PDA can be useful giving a solid basis for testing complex and sophisticated two or three dimensional numerical finite-element computational fluid dynamics codes.
