While thermomechanical analyses in solid and combustion processes in the gas phase are intensively studied separately, their interaction is less investigated. On one hand, the combustion system can be affected by the solid as a result of, for example, the heat conduction. On the other hand, the high-temperature flame can induce the thermal load in the solid, which significantly affects the mechanical stress field in the material. This work focuses on the coupling between the solid and flame and the combustion-induced mechanical stress in the material. The influence of the solid on the flame structures and properties and also the influence of the flame on the thermomechanical behavior in the solid are investigated. A stagnation flow NH3–H2–air flame to a plane wall is considered as a representative model, which is simple but also realistic in many engineering conditions. It is mainly found that an increase of the flame strain rate leads to an increase of thermomechanical stress in the wall, and the system pressure improves the flame stability against extinction but enlarges the induced thermomechanical stress at the same time. Furthermore, it is observed that the hydrogen content in the gas mixture does not affect the thermomechanical stress in the wall if the flames with different hydrogen additions are imposed with the same strain rate. On the basis of various flame parameters, it is also shown that the solid would also flow plastically under certain conditions, such as high pressures. From the viewpoint of the wall, it is mainly shown that the flame stability against extinction can be improved using wall materials with larger heat conductivities.
