Abstract

Graham Dixon-Lewis was a physical chemist who pioneered both experimental and mathematical studies that revealed the nature of flames. His researches, based on what was known of the chemical kinetics of hydrogen oxidation, also showed the way forward for the mathematical modelling of laminar flame structures for other fuels. These models have proved invaluable in providing the input data also for the mathematical modelling of practical turbulent flames.
