The dynamic modelling procedures are based on the use of the information extracted at a filtered level. These procedures have been applied to the subgrid scale stresses in incompressible flow, but their extension to reacting flows poses a lot of problems. In this paper a preliminary study of the dynamic modelling procedure applied to the turbulent transport and the turbulent production of a scalar has been performed.
