Direct numerical simulations of thermonuclear carbon flames in white dwarf interiors are presented. These calculations are performed with the FLASH code, and demonstrate the effectiveness of adaptive mesh refinement for capturing flame fronts. One-dimensional laminar flame velocities are verified, and simulations of two-dimensional flame fronts are presented. This work is supported by the Department of Energy under Grant No. B341495 to the Center for Astrophysical Thermonuclear Flashes at the University of Chicago.
