The evolution of a competitive-consecutive chemical reaction is\ud computed numerically in a two-dimensional chaotic fluid flow with\ud initially segregated reactants. Results from numerical simulations are\ud used to evaluate a variety of reduced models commonly adopted to model\ud the full advection-reaction-diffusion problem. Particular emphasis is\ud placed upon fast reactions, where the yield varies most significantly\ud with Peclet number (the ratio of diffusive to advective time scales).\ud When effects of the fluid mechanical mixing are strongest, we find that\ud the yield of the reaction is underestimated by a one-dimensional\ud lamellar model that ignores the effects of fluid mixing, but\ud overestimated by two other lamellar models that include fluid mixing.
