Dynamics of curved reaction fronts under a single-equation model

Bhanot, R. P. and Strunin, D.V. (2018) Dynamics of curved reaction fronts under a single-equation model. Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM) Journal, 57. C398-C412. ISSN 1445-8735


Fronts of reaction in certain systems (such as so-called solid flames)can be modelled by a high-order nonlinear partial differential equation, which we analyse numerically in this paper. Previously Strunin obtained stable spinning solutions of the equation using the Galerkin method. Here we use a more sophisticated and arguably more powerful method to study the equation further, namely the one-dimensional radial basis function method. As an initial step, we elaborated the numerical code and tested it by reproducing the spinning regimes for a range of initial conditions. In new series of experiments, we found a regime where the front is shaped as a pair of kinks spinning in a stable joint formation. The settled character of this regime is demonstrated.
