An axially stretched cylindrical flame with heat loss to the upstream porous wall, through which a fresh mixture was assumed to percolate, was theoretically analyzed and the characteristics of the flame, which was simultaneously subjected to every effect of stretch, curvature, and heat loss, were investigated. The results were discussed in comparison with those of flames subjected to only one or two conditions. The extinction limit curve was also predicted for an outward propagating flame and was compared with the curve measured in a previous experiment, showing a qualitative agreement.
