Abstract: A mathematical model for viscous compressible realistic reactive flows without species diffusion in dynamic combustion is investigated. The initial-boundary value problem with Dirichlet-Neumann mixed boundaries in a finite domain is studied. The existence, uniqueness, and regularity of global solutions are established with general large initial data in $H^1$. It is proved that, although the solutions have large oscillations and the chemical reaction generates heat, there is no shock wave, turbulence, vacuum, mass or heat concentration developed in a finite time.

Keywords:  Combustion, reacting fluid, real flow, global solutions, existence, uniqueness, a-priori estimates.
