We adopt a steady-state flamelet model in this paper to study the performance of reduced and detailed kinetic mechanisms for methane/air diffusion flames. Through the numerical calculations, we investigate the sensitivity of the main and intermediate species mass fractions to the mixture fraction dissipation rate, χ. Our results seem to suggest a weak to moderate effect of χ on the calculated species mass fraction. It has also been shown in this paper that the current flamelet calculations fail to predict the extinction strain rate.
