A mass-based stretch rate is introduced. Combining this stretch rate with the conservation equations for premixed flames gives a set of quasi-one-dimensional flamelet equations, which describe the structure and the mass burning rate of these flames. An integral analysis is applied to the flamelet equations and subsequently a general expression for the mass burning rate of stretched flames is derived. Finally, the mass burning rate is computed for weakly stretched methane/air flames.
