Physically, the flame structure is locally one-dimensional and depends only on time and on the coordinate normal to the flame front (or on z). This has two consequences: the structure of the reaction zone remains laminar, and diffusive transport occurs essentially in the direction normal to the surface of stoichiometric mixture. Then, the scalar transport equations can be transformed to a system where the mixture fraction is an independent coordinate. A subsequent asymptotic approximation leads to the flamelet equations. The species mass fractions are related to the mixture fraction Z by the solution of the steady flamelet equations, parameterized by the scalar dissipation rate.
