1. Introduction
The simulation of unsteady flows where very stiff phenomena occur, requires that the algo-
rithms have some qualities. Particularly, when several reactive species are present in the flow, the
strong gradients appearing across the flame have to be captured properly. It is necessary to use a
method that is able to follow the physical and chemical events with good accuracy and stability if
