FlameMaster is an open source C++ program package for 0D combustion and 1D laminar flame calculations.

The code is available to anyone who seriously wants to use it. Please login to access the download section. You can request a login here.

The documentation is very sparse, but the package comes with many examples for:

  • Homogeneous reactor or plug flow reactor
  • Steady counterflow diffusion flames with potential flow or plug flow boundary conditions
  • Freely propagating premixed flame
  • Steady flamelet equation
  • Unsteady flamelet equations 

Example (figure): Temperature from an unsteady flamelet calculation of auto-ignition in a VW DI-Diesel engine:

  • Time given in degrees crank angle before TDC
  • Scalar dissipation rate distribution from KIVA calculation
