In the present work, we illustrate the process of constructing a simplified model for complex multi-scale combustion systems. To this end, reduced models of homogeneous ideal gas mixtures of methane and air are first obtained by the novel relaxation redistribution method, and thereafter used for the extraction of all the missing variables in a reactive flow simulation with a global reaction model. 
An Approach for approximating slow and fast dynamics of multi-scale dynamical systems

Approximation of slow attracting manifolds in chemical kinetics by trajectory-based optimization approaches.
This work presents a framework of trajectory-based optimization for model reduction in chemical kinetics and a general class of reduction criteria characterizing the relaxation of chemical forces along reaction trajectories and provides results for the computational approximation of slow attracting low-dimensional manifolds in terms of families of optimal trajectories for a six-component hydrogen combustion mechanism.
