The effect of the Damkohler number (Da) and non-unity Lewis number on a two-dimensional, steady, laminar diffusion flame anchored by a dividing plate in a rectangular channel was considered. The governing equations were solved numerically, using the SIMPLE and ADI schemes. The results for non-unity Lewis number were compared with those for a unity Lewis number, and Da a was also varied in order to determine their effect on the flame structure. The results show that an increase in the Da causes the flame to exist closer to the trailing edge of the divider and to increase the reactivity. A non-unity Lewis number creates a non-symmetrical flame by forcing the flame to exist on the fuel side.
