    In this thesis, a numerical simulation study is presented of the influence of steam on premixed and partially premixed combustion. Both laminar (premixed) and turbulent (partially premixed) calculations are presented. The laminar calculations were performed using a detailed chemical mechanism and the 1-dimensional CHEMKIN PREMIX code that allows the numerical simulation of premixed, freely propagating flames. The turbulent calculations were performed using a novel combustion model which is presented here. Results are presented of a case without any dilution, a case with steam dilution and a case with nitrogen dilution.
