    The possibilities and limitations of applying the eddy break-​up model to non-​premixed flames is analyzed.  The purpose is to explain the apparent success of the model and to point out problems that are encountered when combining the model with a multistep reaction mechanism.  The model can be used in the anal. of hydrocarbon flames with 4-​step mechanism.  The shortcomings of the model are discussed.  Effect of temp. fluctuations on the reaction rate, the eddy break-​up model and finite rate chem., and methane-​oxygen flame calcns. are considered.
