The report is a user's manual that describes the problems that can be treated by the Premixed One-dimensional Flame (PROF) code. It also describes the mathematical models and solution procedures applied to these problems. Complete input instructions and a description of output are given. Several sample problem input and output listings are presented to demonstrate code options. A program listing and code Fortran variable definitions are included. The PROF code numerically models complex chemistry and diffusion processes in premixed laminar flames. Since the code includes diffusion, it gives realistic solutions of coupled combustion and pollutant formation processes in the flame zone, as well as downstream in the postflame region. The code can be a valuable aid when interpreting experimental flame data. In addition to flames, the PROF code can also treat problems involving well-stirred reactors, plug-flow reactors, and time-evolution chemical kinetics. A wide variety of conventional and experimental combustion systems can be treated by the code's flame and reactor options.
