Abstract

High temperature filtration in combustion and gasification processes is a highly interdisciplinary field. Thus, particle technology in general has to be supported by elements of physics, chemistry, thermodynamics and heat and mass transfer processes. Presented in this paper is the analytical method for describing hightemperature gas filtration combustion in an inert porous medium. We assume the porous media is highly permeable and both the contact time between the phases and the rate of oxidizer diffusion through the gas stream to the surface of the solid particles where the reaction occurs are not large. Also, we assume that the initial temperatures increase lengthwise. The coupled nonlinear partial differential equations describing the phenomenon have been decoupled using the parameter-expanding method and solved analytically using eigenfunctions expansion technique. The results obtained revealed that the combustion wave is propagated and oxidizer is consumed. A self-oscillating mode of gas filtration combustion was found with variation in the values of interfacial heat transfer.
