Explicit adaptive calculations of wrinkled flame propagation. (English) Zbl 0645.76075

The aim of this work is to study the propagation of a curved premixed flame in an infinite two-dimensional tube. The numerical method combines some features of the finite-element and of the finite-difference methods, and uses a moving adaptive grid procedure in order to reduce the computational costs.
