## Abstract

In the spirit of laminar-flamelet modelling of non-premixed turbulent combustion, a diffusion flamelet is studied. However, the flamelet is also taken to end at a finite position. Such an end of a diffusion flame exhibits fuel-rich and fuel-lean elements as well as the diffusion flame sheet—a structure that is known as a \emph{triple-flame} and which has the property of being able to propagate. A counterflow geometry with shear becomes the most relevant situation in which to picture ends of diffusion flames in a turbulent flow. In an equidiffusive system, the speed of propagation of the end-point is demonstrated to be positive only for relatively limited values of strain or scalar dissipation rate and becomes large and negative towards the higher finite value at which a diffusion flame would extinguish uniformly. The implications of these findings for the behaviour of turbulent diffusion flames are discussed.
