Homogeneous, heterogeneous and reactive flows are important in the aeronautical, space and chemical industries, industrial furnaces, nuclear engineering, the production of gas and electricity, the automotive industry, and many other fields. Chemical reactions play a role in many processes. They may be inherent to the process of interest-as in chemical engineering or combustion, or in the case of air pollution mechanisms. They can also be a consequence of motion- for instance, they occur during the atmospheric re-entry of a spacecraft, which causes intense heating to occur around its
