AbstractA relationship between the partially-premixed deflagration speed and the local degree of mixing was derived based on simple scaling laws. The results are validated by comparison with direct numerical simulations of the primitive equations. The correct trend is observed regarding the decrease of speed from the planar premixed deflagration down to the diffusion flame quenching with the narrowing of the local mixing-layer. Satisfactory agreements are also obtained considering the increase in the robustness of the flame with asymmetry of its tip.
