A simple model of band radiation from a fluctuating medium, which emulates fluctuations in a turbulent diffusion flame, has been studied to determine the relative importance of the many mean and fluctuation parameters. The importance of fluctuations is largely confined to variation in the Planck function, which is strongly dependent upon the mean and variance of the mixture fraction and upon the band fundamental wavenumber.
