It is well-known in the combustion community that curvature effect in general slows down ame propagation speeds because it smooths out wrinkled ames. However, such a folklore has never been justi ed rigorously. In this paper, as the rst theoretical result in this direction, we prove that the turbulent ame speed (an e ective burning velocity) is decreasing with respect to the curvature di usivity (Markstein number) for shear flows in the well-known G-equation model. Our proof involves several novel and rather sophisticated inequalities arising from the nonlinear structure of the equation. On a related fundamental issue, we solve the selection problem of weak solutions or nd the "physical fluctuations" when the Markstein number goes to zero and solutions approach those of the inviscid G-equation model. The limiting solution is given by a closed form analytical formula.
