Abstract

An approximate analytical solution of the Caram-Amundson model of combustion of carbon has been obtained based on a cubic polynomial for the homogenous reaction rate in the “film” surrounding a flat carbon slab. The film has been defined as the region where both the homogenous reaction rate and its gradient vanish at its edge. The agreement between the present solution and the numerical solution of Caram and Amundson is very good.
