Abstract : A new theoretical description of mean chemical reaction rates in premixed turbulent combustion is devised. The mean rate is described as the product of the number of flamelet crossings per unit time and the average chemical production per crossing. Chemical mechanisms of arbitrary complexity can be accommodated. A generalized description of turbulent transport is proposed for use in combuster flow field calculations. The experimental programme was not successful because of illness and staff changes. (jes)
