Paper Abstract

The Rayleigh-Taylor instability of an ablation front has been studied by means of a new analytical model. It is valid for the regime with large and intermediate Froude numbers but it is well behaved also for Fr <EQ 10-2. The model is not limited by a particular approximation for the unperturbed corona profiles. For this, it is suitable to be used with the profiles given by accurate 1D simulations. Besides, it applies to other deflagrations such as laminar flames.
